You are correct on how a legend can be used. If a legend needs to be placed on more than one sheet this technique will not work without making duplicates of the "legend" so it can be placed on multiple sheets. The legend views in Revit can't use tags and do only place family geometry in spcific view directions that may or may not work in the legend. Those elements can still be drawn/drafted with detail lines and filled regions. Not the most elegant solution, but you are only doing it one time for the project. If you don't want to draft the elements you can also take a screen shot if the element in another view and import the image file into the legend.
