Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: In every other respect, checkboxes work independently of each other.
I think it would be more confusing for checkboxes to work as a group in this
case than to have them be different than radio buttons. Honestly I don't think
any of the use cases with checkboxes really make sense, though the "you agree
to these terms and conditions" use case is at least common, if not especially
great for the user. What would the use case be for having one or more of a set
of check boxes selected?
