Too bad but I hear you... Definitely don't want to over complicate something if it can come back to haunt you later. You can avoid visible standing water altogether if you like and just add a drain to remove the runoff.
I'm looking forward to seeing how you handle the sliding doors especially. I really want to do one of these, because you have so much control over the finished product.

If I'm still into plywood after this build, I think I'll want to do a paludarium with a good front view into the water section.
