In that case too:
<fieldset disabled>
  <fieldset disabled>
    <legend><input></legend>
  </fieldset>
</fieldset>

<input> should be disabled.

The specifications requires that the first fieldset's form controls are
disabled if not in its first legend so <input> will be disabled because of
that. However, the second fieldset will keep <input> enabled.

So, a careful reading can let the reader think that <input> should be disabled
but a clarification might be appreciated because it's hard to say if that is by
chance or not.
