I like the first example code. The latter is too verbose.

Yet, the first can't have the image linked to another page or to a higher  
resolution. This limits the use cases.

I'm sticking to my initial suggestion. The new caption attribute for IMG  
would do no harm, and it would just serve its purpose.
