I think you confused the <legend> and <label> elements, because what you
said and what you tested doesn't correspond. Your test doesn't use the
<label> element, it uses the <caption> and <legend> elements. <label>
certainly doesn't suffer from such problems, but using it for labelling
things other than form controls seems wrong to me anyway.
