Conditionally Required Fields

CA Technical Support's response started with "Unfortunately..." so I figured I'd give the collective genius of the GUC a try with this challenge:

I'm in the process of designing a new object (infrastructure storage request, but that's irrelevant), the requirements for which call for a number of conditionally required fields. For example, if the attribute "Type" is set to "Expedited' during creation, the attribute "Delivery Date" becomes required on the edit screen. As far as I know, there isn't an easy way to meet this requirement through Studio. We can make the attribute displayed / not displayed using conditions on the section or subpage but we can't make the field required. Custom processes, even, are not able to modify an attribute's properties on the fly.

At this point, we're looking to handle it with e-mail notifications in the event that certain fields are not populated. I'd love to have a more elegant solution! Any thoughts GUC?
