Proposition 1 :
And what about just giving to <img> a content ?

<p><img src="image-equivalent-of-text" alt="text"><caption>Title
<b>is</b> caption</caption><span>alternate text is just the content of
<code>img</code> without enclosing element</span></p>

but it could be inconsistent with just alt content of an <img>...

Proposition 2 :
or just giving img an id
then using @for attribute
<p><caption for="img1">this is <b>the</b> caption</caption><img
id="img1" src="image-equivalent-of-text" alt="text"></p>

Just proposals
