kind of weird that among all the symbology possibilities this is not doable(?). Missing something obvious?

Hello, bug triage...

still true in QGIS 2.13 master. We need a new symbol level which could be named as "outline: complex line" which could have as many simple line sub-levels.

Yes, this is possible now. You can style polygons with "outline: simple line" or "outline: marker line" symbol types.

Sorry, I didn't test enough to see that the line styles in the library were composed of marker and simple lines. Nice for spotting this !
It could be improved by permitting to choose a line style in the library for polygons but this needs another feature request.
