How is that possible to keep a component required in readonly mode?

I'm wondering why do you need to have required=true, for read-only field, meaning that user can't edit this field.
Let's say even if this read-only fields are filled from other part of the code, and let's you managed to set them required=true. And checking will fail, and the user will get a message that this field a mandatory, but he still can't edit them. So it's really a confusing behaviour. 
 If the required values are not coming from the user input, but from other place let's say database, you should check these values as soon as you get them.

If you want to change only the appearence of the field (adding an asterix to the required field) you should do this via css.
