Apologies, but I have no idea what you're talking about and can only
assume that we're both misunderstanding each other. My suggested
styling had nothing to do with multiple captions; it was about
targetting a top-caption in a way that wouldn't target a
bottom-caption, and vice versa, so you could style them differently.
Can you provide a code example of what you're talking about? Here's
what I mean:

But not ones like this:
figure > [caption]:last-child will do the opposite.
Thus you can use these to style things differently based on whether
you've placed the caption at the top or the bottom of the figure.
(For example, making the <figure> display:table and @caption
display:table-caption, and setting caption-side to be top or bottom
based on the location of the @caption element.)
