Requiring checkbox input is not possible.
How do you want to check that the user entered a value?

Requiring radio input should be possible, but offering a radio box without a selected default value is no good practice.

when there are several options for a checkbox input, it is possible to make it mandatory; I agree that with one option only, requiring it makes no sense.
The checkbox input is in terms of possible choices equivalent to a list input (cf.
If it is possible to require a list input, then it should also be the case for the checkbox, if there are several options.
I agree that requiring a radio input without a selected default value is not fine.
