But those very long values would only appear for unusually complex
restrictions. I expect situations with more than 1-2 conditions to be
very rare. Do you disagree with that assumption?

On a more general note, we should always be aware that all of the
possible solutions for this problem have some downsides. We cannot just
discard an idea when we find one flaw. We need to identify the solution
whose flaws matter the least in practice.
