[Bug 10833] The element should only suffer from being missing if all of the checkbox choices are unselected - like radio buttons

To be clear, I definitely think that

<form>
  <input type=checkbox name=a required>
  <input type=checkbox name=b required> <!-- Note, different name -->
</form>

Should be allowed and should require that *both* checkboxes are checked. It was
unclear to me if you agreed with that or not Maciej?

What I interpreted the scope of this bug to was if the following markup
required only one of the boxes to be checked, or if both had to be checked:

<form>
  <input type=checkbox name=a required>
  <input type=checkbox name=a required> <!-- Note, same name -->
</form>

There is also the complication of what to do with markup like:

<form>
  <input type=checkbox name=a required>
  <input type=checkbox name=a> <!-- Note, required missing -->
</form>
This complication is the main reason I'm hesitant to treat the boxes as a
group.
