Windows often uses additional pop-up dialogs (like in the display
settings) which I wouldn't say is a good solution. I don't know about
Mac because I never had one.

So I propose
to add a group of toggle buttons to the top of the content of those
tabs which need them. They can be separated from the actual content by a
separator. The following link shows a mockup of this (it shows a dialog
that combines the options of the "Keyboard" and "Keyboard Accessibility"
FWIW, it's more common on other platforms to do this kind of thing with
a dropdown list rather than a group of toggle buttons. If you're going
to have the toggle buttons, you might as well have the tabs IMHO.
I guess the "taking a step back" question might be: how do Mac and
Windows avoid having multi-level complexity in their capplets? Without
looking at either of them, I can think of maybe one Mac capplet that has
a second-level dropdown list, and none on Windows.
