Probably a carry-over from WF 2.0, which did have oninput firing for checkboxes.

What does that mean?

Changes to the input's checked state do not trigger change events to fire.

Did you mean that you want a change event to fire when the checked
state changes? I hope not, because that would contradict HTML 4, DOM
Events, and what browsers do.
