Note Marco is only talking about Firefox 3 and a significant selection
of recent screen readers for GNOME and Windows, his test case is about
individual field labels not group labels, and even there he mentions
that it doesn't work with the most popular screen reader amongst those
tested. LEGEND works in more user agents and AT combinations and is
therefore more backwards compatible.
