Apparently, the label element used outside a fieldset has the same  
problems as caption outside a table (not present in the DOM,  
impossible to style). At least on Gecko and WebKit.

I've updated my test cases with a figure using the legend element and  
added a stylesheet to set color of caption and legend elements to  
better demonstrate that it doesn't work in HTML; with XML it works  
fine however.
