Unchecked BooleanFields raise validation error

BooleanFields should not call "super(BooleanField, self).clean(value)" as that raises a validation error if the field is not included in the data, and unchecked boolean fields aren't included in HTTP POST.

What's the point of a checkbox that has to be checked? The docs say that BooleanFields will never raise a validation error.
