While I somewhat agree with this bug, the fact is that <figure> – as it is
defined – can only be used as a paragraph level container.

It sounds as if you think that the whole point with <figure> is that it can be
used for to provide a caption for other elements. 

If this is the case, then a) it shoul dnot be limited to paragraph level, b)
<figure> should probably be renamed or at least it should be made very clear
what the real purpose is.
