<table>+<caption> works fine already.

Image+description should be covered by <figure>, although its current  
restrictions are pretty limitative in my opinion.

<dt>+<dd> works fine too, I think. It may be used as a substitute for  
<figure> currently, but I think the appearance of <figure> in the  
spec will make this practice obsolete.

As for lists, maybe <legend> should be allowed within list elements,  
although I can't say I have seen as much interest for this as for  
captioning images.

So I wonder what is to rethink exactly, because beside some minor  
issues it seems to be evolving in the right direction.
