I am currently trying to use the suggest fieldtype to allow my site admin to choose categories for blog articles, which seems to be working fairly well so far :^)

The site i'm working on absolutely requires all blog articles to be in a category, so i first tried simply "required: true" Although this turned the display name in the admin red as expected, i could leave the field blank and it would save just fine with no warning at all.

At first i thought it might be because i set a placeholder... but removing that made no difference. I also tried "allow_blank: false" (even though that is apparently the default) in conjunction with "required: true" but no combination i can come up with makes my suggest field required.

Is there a reason for this or is it an oversight?
