I think it came down to 'well, it's a form you fill out in order, so
ordered lists makes a tad more sense than unordered'.

I'm not married to the OL, though. Are there some good arguments for
making it a UL? Or maybe not a list at all? The primary purpose was to
create block level elements (LI) so we could format the items via CSS.

Going back to the legend vs. header issue, I haven't really found much
in the way of strong opinions either way.
