Summary of Issue: use of fieldset should not be required for any group of logically related input elements
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The test mandates the use of fieldset for any logically related group of input elements while the description of the same technique allows:

"When a small group of related radio buttons includes clear instructions and distinct selections it may not be necessary to use fieldsets and legends"

Proposed Change:
Have a conditional at the beginning of the tests:

"For any group of logically related input elements that is not small easily identified in its labels or titles"

..or similar
