            Bug ID: 21971
           Summary: Paragraph elements in fieldset example are
                    semantically incorrect.
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
          Reporter: xaxiobrandish@gmail.com

The paragraph elements located in the examples at the following location are
semantically incorrect:

http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/forms.html#dom-fieldset-elements

As per posts on the mailing list, they serve to separate content rather than
grouping it.

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-comments/2013May/0017.html

Specifically, in the three examples at the end of the section, all paragraph
elements can be removed and still achieve the same semantic effect.  All of the
elements in the forms are related, and separated by labels.
