Why.

When requesting features, please always include use cases and which underlying problem you'd like to see solved. Thanks.

Isn't this exactly what a radio button does?

Probably, I've asked at https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T4477

Why.

See https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T4477 - sometimes it only makes sense to be able to select one option.
(although I'm not saying it should be checkmatrix so leaving this stalled)

From John on Miraheze Phab (https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T4477#85085):

A matrix of radio buttons is an extremely common survey feature and is desirable in the situation we’ve used them in place.

Turning one question into 7 separate questions creating a longer and less user friendly design is less desirable. If the radio options were across and not down, it would be acceptable to split them but still not ideal.

@Aklapper is that a suitable use case?

Sorry for not mentioning the reason, forgot. What @RhinosF1 said.
