The Required Attribute

The availability of this attribute could vastly improve the consistent
accessibility of this information to users with disabilities.  However,
for this to be true, work will need to be done to assure that user
agents provide means to indicate the required state to all users,
including those with disabilities, regardless of whether they are using
AT.  Displaying consistent visual cues (that are (or can be made)
non-color-dependent), as well as programmatic indication for AT will be
necessary.
