Ok, well it seems to me like you are being sarcastic. So that aside, nothing in
the spec is just a 'word'. The use of words like  'table', 'form' etc all have
specific meaning that is defined somewhere within the spec (usually rather
clearly I may add). I am suggesting that this then needs to also happen here
regarding the use of a 'caption' within a form - so authors are clear of the
purpose of these things and how they behave.
