Unchecked BooleanFields raise validation error

Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


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.

One use case off the top of my head: Having users agree to a site's terms of service by checking a box.
