I wouldn't call it complicated, but perhaps unnecessary for the US market. I will say that I used to have rear fogs on my Jaguar, and while they're cool, the fog here in the U.S. isn't nearly as bad as across the pond, so they're a pointless option that would drive up costs.
HID headlamp leveling, while nice and less time consuming than DIY leveling, most Americans go to the dealer for changing a freakin' light bulb, so no need to provide controls for leveling their own headlamps.
