<label> is not good, because it is reasonable to style form control  
labels the way the platform styles labels, but the styling may not be  
appropriate for figure captions. Also, the for attribute is now  
supposed to refer to a form control.

I think it is better to introduce a <figcaption> or something than to  
confuse what <label> is.
