Chris, does this <caption> actually appear in the DOM in IE?  What 
happens if the table already has a <caption>?

It might just be that putting the content into a <caption> is preferable 
to hoisting it out of the table altogether, if that gives better compat 
with what IE does.  It doesn't sound like it would be much more 
difficult to implement than the current "hoist the content out of the 
table" algorithm.
