HTML Fieldset missing a Legend


From: Laurence Lewis

The HTML Spec says that the <legend> element is optional for a <fieldset>.
I am interested to understand if not having a Legend is a WCAG 1.3.1 Info
and Relationships or 3.2.2 Labels or Instructions.
I do not believe not naming a Fieldset is a WCAG fail for either sc, and
would appreciate the opinions of others. Thanks.
