okay, as said, this is rather a minor annoyance. However, fixing this
might nevertheless be desirable since the combination of checkboxes and
todo item is quite powerful.

Imagine you are compiling a document where you need contributions from
others. You could make a todo item for this with checkboxes for every
chapter planned (or for every author you expect input from, or ...). As
soon as contributions from authors arrive, you create todo items
preferably below the same initial todo item, indicating that you have to
integrate input. When compiling the document you finish those todo items
on the one hand and on the other hand checkboxes will eventually get
checked as chapters are finished. Although putting the chapter
checkboxes into its own sub-item is possible, much of the simplicity and
elegance of the original approach gets lost. What do you think?
