Since Tobruk is a fortress, bypassing it should be reasonable presuming there are 2 ir 3 units sieging/ZOCing it.
It's not easy for the UK to take it, as their TAC bombers don't remove entrenchment (yet).
I disagree with the requirement to take Tobruk, as it's a fortress that historically was bypassed by the British. I also think the "no units west of Gazala" works badly if the Axis player defends Gazala, as it keeps the allied player from surrounding the city and cuts the hexes you can attack it from in have. "No units more than 1 hex west of Gazala unless they've taken Gazala" if you want to stop the gamey 'force the DAK to spawn cut off and surrounded' thing without preventing historical options like bypassing Tobruk or surrounding Gazala.
These are both very excellent points. I guess I didn't think it all the way through before chiming in...
