I consider this one worse than what we currently have. Having help system say thing like that makes player to expect that there actually are means to get Rocketry, which in the original purpose of root req -feature (distinct tech tress) is not true.

"Only those who know Rocketry can acquire this technology." ?

We'll also want some words to replace "You cannot research this technology".
I'm thinking something like "You cannot acquire this technology by any means without prior knowledge of Rocketry."

From bug #17887, concerning reqtree view with root reqs:

It's not possible to tell from the help what the "unlocking" tech for a tech is.
Perhaps different-coloured lines on the tech tree diagram... might get unmanageable if root_req is not one of req1/req2 though, say for a single root_req unlocking a whole subtree of techs.
