As an author, the legacy issues linked to the <legend> element are too big to
overcome (or at least so far in all our testing), and the <figure> and
<details> are valuable additions to the markup language.

I would like to see support from vendors to find/propose an alternative to the
<legend> element as this will work across all browsers.  I've been through a
lot of the tests (Bruce references my blog posts) so it's safe to say even
fixing <legend> in future browsers sadly isn't enough to allow authors to start
using <figure> and <details>

What, if any, are the objects to the two suggestions Bruce has?

> Alternatively a new element - <description>? <c>? should be specified.
