If someone took the precaution of recording a mobile number on the form, ensured they had the charged mobile of that number with them at all times and switched off where possible apps that reported location, how would the quarantine be enforced?
T7 isn't quite correct. You can leave your home to get food, if nobody else can go for you. You are not condemned to Dominos Pizza for 2 weeks.
And it is not enforced. Recently I was not checked at the airport and received no phone call, let alone a visit. It is really an invitation to self-quarantine. The main risk of getting caught may be being ratted out by a neighbour or acquaintance. The two recent cases in the Isle of Man, where two people went to jail for breaking quarantine, were both ratted out by others.
So if you are going to break quarantine, don't brag about it.
