I'd file it as a bug as it will put this issue on the WGs radar. We could argue if it's a bug or
not ;-) but filing it will help feed into any future requirements gathering that's done that
may result in expanding aria-required use on other HTML elements.

FWIW, I would have thought that it 'should' work on other elements and not just input
boxes (if needed) for accessible UI development.
