I just had a thought (that I sanity-checked in IRC)...
Perhaps <fieldset> should be a sectioning root?
It "feels" like it's a similar kind of grouping element to
<blockquote> and <td> in that, while it might well contain headings,
you probably wouldn't want those headings to contribute to the overall
outline of the document.
What do you think?
