"The required attribute applies to all form controls except controls with 
the type hidden, image inputs, buttons, and select, fieldset, and output 
elements. It can be used on controls with the readonly attribute set; this 
may be useful in scripted environments. For disabled controls, the attribute 
has no effect."
 -- http://whatwg.org/specs/web-forms/current-work/#required 

However, at http://whatwg.org/specs/web-forms/current-work/#summary, the 
only controls that can have the 'required' attribute are: text, password, 
file, datetime, datetime-local, date, month, week, time, number, range, 
email, uri. 

* 'checkbox' and 'radio' should definitely be marked as 'Yes' in the table. 

I also think that the original paragraph should be clarified; I had trouble 
understanding whether 'buttons' in the original text referred to 
'button-like controls' or 'the <button> control' (does 'move-up' need to be 
implemented as a 'button'?). 

Would it be easier to make it an inclusive list?
