A current acceptable solution does not prevent us from searching more suitable
one. Legend is semantically more suitable (see comment 4 for reasoning). I
personally would prefer LEGEND inside redundant FIELDSET instead of just
abstract H1 header.

After all, if there is no difference between H1 and LEGEND, why LEGEND is
required to be first first child of FIELDSET while H1 is not?
