I can't comment from an accessibility point of view, only from a visual
and formatting one.

I used fieldset and legend all the time in forms and visually, in IE and
mozilla it results in a border like this:

  -- Legend ---------
  |                 |
  |                 |
  -------------------

In Opera 6 it looks like this:

  -------------------
  |  Legend         |
  |                 |
  -------------------

With mozilla a lot of control of the border and background is possible
using CSS, with IE and Opera less control.
