It also presents the dummy "it" subject with the adjective complement immediately following the adjective.

Despite the lack of web-based examples and info, can the subject-position adjective complement truly be considered an adjective complement? I appreciate any input you may have!

There seems to be a fundamental terminological contradiction here: a complement cannot by definition ever be a subject, or vice-versa!
