Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: <legend> has historically had such crazy parsing rules that it's
prevented us from using it anywhere else at all (for example I originally
wanted to use it instead of <figcaption> and <summary>). There's really no
problem with using <h1> if you want a heading in a form.
