Yes. Of course it's legal and so there is no simple answer as to why, but a simplified reasoning is:
Public domain is not recognised in some countries, not possible in others and not enforceable in yet more. CC0 asserts copyright (which is reasonably standard across the world) so that all rights can then be waived can then be waived by the copyright holder.
Think of it as an (almost) worldwide enforceable public domain.
