The "any 3 from 4" situation[1] is certainly case that crops up now and
again, and it's a pity that nobody seems to have yet designed a UI
control that handles it elegantly.  

However, I would claim that's not a good enough reason to break people's
model and expectations of existing controls when there's a simple enough
solution that doesn't :)
