To be clear: _visual_ browsers may not (or even should not) implement any
changes related to proposed spec change. Current behavior of visual browsers is
_already_ OK as for styling legend wrapped into extra div.

As for fieldset/legend _in particular_, as for browsers for visual impaired
users, it would not be hard to implement updated logic that find legend related
to a fieldset just taking into account that a div(s) may be an intermediate
tree level between fieldset and legend, and that legend may not be exactly
first child of fieldset.

Finally, the point of the bug is mainly just to _document_ existing behavior of
all current browsers into the spec (such documenting is actually one of
fundamental HTML5 spec purposes), and _not_ inventing or adding something brand
new at all.
