Logic behind aria-required not being valid on role=checkbox?

Somebody brought a use case to my attention today regarding the use of aria-required and role=checkbox, and it seems like a valid one, however aria-required doesn't appear to be supported on role=checkbox.

The use case being that of a License Agreement checkbox where, if the checkbox is not checked then the form will not submit, so technically interacting with the checkbox is required to proceed.

Would there be any interest in adding aria-required as a supported attribute of role=checkbox in this case?
