This is literally the opposite of what this is about and i am genuinely amazed that this is your interpretation of it.
They are trying to create a tracking system that works as well as possible on one base station.
At no point is it suggested that having 2 stations is a problem. This headset uses steam tracking hardware.
Rather than being a forced compromise, this is them being able to do perfect tracking with 2, but pushing to find a way to have even better tracking with one. Its never going to be able to track occluded controllers, but its still worth doing and interesting, to me at least.
