IMHO the same as with <selectMany> and radiogroup applies to <selectOne> 
and checkboxGroup. Though it may be possible to display this in most 
UI-toolkits, it is normally not assured by the toolkit that only one 
entry may be selected by the user.

in my understanding radiobuttons are defined to allow only one selection 
while checkboxes allow the selection of one (but not strictly one) or 
many values. This is expressed by their different appearence and there 
would be no reason to have both types without that distinction.
