The idea here is that this should be conforming (if generated by a photo album
site):

   <section>
    <h1>My ducks</h1>
    <img src="photo001.jpeg">
   </section>

...in the same way that this is:

   <figure>
    <figcaption>My ducks</figcaption>
    <img src="photo001.jpeg">
   </figure>

...or this is:

   <img src="photo001.jpeg" title="My ducks">

...because they all essentially have the same semantics: an image with a label.

Why would this be bad?
