The part of what you want that is AFAIK not possible with the current
kconfig is the "allyesconfig and randconfig would pre-select".

The actual dependencies on such an option could trivially be expressed
the way you want it.

But I'm trying to make the kconfig dependencies more robust by making
them less complex, and making them more complex for this developer-only
use case is nonsense.

Even more considering that the developer who gave the initial list of
variables is the same who always spreads FUD about kconfig when the
complex dependencies break...
