I'm sure it's doable. I'm only speculating here, but I think one reason why lack is reluctant to allow it is that it would make the game selection more difficult - you couldn't just choose any map and any settings, when maps would have restrictions on what settings you could use... so I guess it'd require some changes to the game creation interface first.
it would be as easy as making some of the options greyed out. for example when the first 1v1 map gets to beta and you'll try to make a game, probably the buttons for 3-8 players will be grey and you won't be able to click them.
something similar could be done for everything else. or if lack is lazy he can just leave the interface as it is and we'll simply get an error.
try to make an 8p triples game or a 3 player doubles and you'll see what i mean.
greyed out buttons would be nicer and more userfriendly though.
a more complex variant would be conditional settings. for example manual deployment is not allowed in 2-3 player games but it is allowed in 4-8 player games.

you still think that is ever gonna be made? it's been 5 years since it was suggested.
