Valid elements for aria-required

Hi everyone,

I was just about to enter a bug for a screen reader about
aria-required not working on some form elements, and realised I don't
have a list of the requirements it should work on.

In the WAI-ARIA spec [1] it says 'form elements that require input or
selection by the user', should that include radio buttons, checkboxs
and select elements?

The HTML5 spec doesn't appear to specify [2], and all the examples
only seem to use text inputs. I could be looking in the wrong place
there though!

Would it be valid to raise a big that required doesn't work on other
form elements?
