In my experience, the biggest problem with Customize is that it is
very difficult to find a user option, because of the sheer number of
customization groups and options.  That's the main problem I had back
when I was learning to use Emacs.  In fact, I found it easier to learn
Emacs Lisp and write a .emacs file than to use Customize.

As for additional complexity, I implemented the idea for my own
personal amusement, and it was easy.
