AD Child Domains

We are in the process of making a modification to our AD structure. For
PCI compliance we need to segregate a portion of our users to a separate
domain. This set of users do not need/want (and are very vocal about
it) to follow the stricter password policy that PCI mandates.
I understand that when you create a child domain it by default creates a
two-way transitive trust between the two domains. Is it possible to
limit this trust relationship to a one-way trust relationship? If this
is possible it seems to me that it may be preferable to creating a new
forest just for a couple of hundred users.
Of course it is entirely possible that I am not thinking this through
completely and am missing some important factors to consider. Your
thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
