Maybe this is what you are calling usecase: legend in my forms is usually
heading/title of the entire form. For example, poll form:

<form action="#" method="post"><fieldset>
    <legend>Some question</legend>
    <ul>
        <li><label><input type="radio" ...> Answer 1</label></li>
        <li><label><input type="radio" ...> Answer 2</label></li>
        <li><label><input type="radio" ...> Answer 3</label></li>
    </ul>
    <div><input type="submit" value="Vote" /></div>
</fieldset></form>

I want to style legend _consistently_ across browsers _without_ workarounds and
tricks. Styling legend itself is inconsistent across browsers while styling
wrapper is consistent.
