IIRC, <legend> isn't fully handled through CSS at all in most current browsers.
 The "equivalent" is just some magic handling of the display of the element in
C++.  This should hopefully *not* be enshrined in the HTML5 spec, as it is a
very weird area of current browsers.

Instead, we should be adding something to CSS that allows the proper display of
<legend>, so browsers can remove the magic but still display legacy content as
it always has.
