The caption element has been created for tables, but except if
browsers have a special parsing for it. I wonder what it would give
associated with other things like objects, lists, etc.
It's very common to see index of figures, index of tables, etc.
<caption>Here my caption</caption>
Or something like this
<meta property="dc:title">Here my caption</meta>
Though Ian seems to say that meta is put back in the HEAD element.
Q1: Is it happening only in tag soup parsing mode?
Q2: Would a data element which has not been created yet would solve
the issue Q1?
<data property="dc:title">Here my caption</data>
