Custom Required Field for Features and Requirements

It seems that only custom fields for Ideas can be flagged as Required Fields.  I would like to be able to specify custom fields for features and requirements to also be required.  For example, I integrate requirements with TFS as backlog items.  (Features go as Features).  I want each requirement to include Type as Bug or Product Backlog Item because these are the two types of backlog items I have define in TFS.  I don't have many bugs start in Aha! but it happens and I want to push them into TFS as a bug work item.  If left blank, the TFS item will be a PBI.  

An alternative approach is to set a default value on a custom field.  That way, it at least defaults to something and is less likely to be left blanks.

    This would really help with data standardization and reporting.

    Really need this so I don't have orphaned features without my custom fields

    I would just like the ability to mark a custom field on a feature as required. It seems weird that I can mark a custom field on an Idea as required but not on a feature.
