[wp-hackers] Where have the fieldsets gone in 2.5?

I posted this a while ago to wp-testers but didn't get much of a
response. Apologies to those who subscribe to both.

Looking over the 2.5 admin screen source, all the <fieldset>s have
been changed to <div>s separated by <h3>s. Surely a fieldset with a
legend is more semantic than a div with an h3. This only bothers me
because a few of my plugins insert additional fieldsets into the admin
screens, and in 2.5 the styling has been removed from fieldsets.

I'm happy to write a patch to switch back to using fieldsets if it's
likely to get committed.

Can anyone give insight into this particular change?
