It's not really the <fieldset> that is enabled/disabled, it's the
controls within it. Put it this way: if we dropped support for disabled=""
from the spec, I think one would still argue that <input> is :enabled, but
I don't think one would argue that <fieldset> is :enabled. Case in point,
nobody argued that <fieldset> should match :enabled before we added the
disabled="" attribute to it.
