I use it sometimes for a very small form, where I think <p> or <hx> is 
inappropriate and <fieldset> is overkill. As in

<form action="login.php" method="post">
     <label for="uname">Username:</label>
     <input type="text" name="uname" id="uname">
    <label for="passwd">Password:</label>
     <input type="password" name="passwd" id="passwd">

I suppose I am not the only one who has made similar constructs. Should 
they all become non-conformant over night?
