I'm not sure why the FAA makes such heavy weather about the issue. The CAA in the UK, and I believe in many other countries as well, required this long ago. I understand US carriers departing from the UK have to comply with this.

It's not hard for the seat allocation system to handle it at point of reservation. The family group is often just presented with seats rather than getting choice, but there you go.
