Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

As far as I am aware, nothing links checkboxes together currently — there's
no more of a relationship between two type=checkbox inputs with the same name
and two type=text inputs with the same name. type=radio are a special case of
their own.

We could change that for type=checkbox and required="", but I'm skeptical that
it's that good an idea. If you really want the user to select one or more from
a list, use <select multiple required>.
