According to bug 10483, it should not be necessary  to  use aria-labelledby on
the <figure> in this example. (But of course using aria-labelledby like you
did, should be both permitted and best practise to do so.) The spec should make
it clear that aria-labelledby is a best practice measure.

In a summary, I suggest to make the example like this, to make it clear that
HTML5 supporting user agents do not need more than this  :

<figure role="img" >
 <pre role="presentation" >
 o           .'`/
     '      /  (
   O    .-'` ` `'-._      .')
      _/ (o)        '.  .' /
      )       )))     ><  <
      `\  |_\      _.'  '. \
        '-._  _ .-'       '.)
    jgs     `\__\
 </pre>
 <figcaption>
  Joan G. Stark, "<cite>fish</cite>".
  October 1997. ASCII on electrons. 288.
 </figcaption> 
</figure>

The <figcaption> will automatically get role="heading", and will be considered
heading of the <figure>.

Eventually, you could use the occasation to show how simple it can be done when
using <figure>, and how much more work one must do when using <div> as the
contianer. E.g .when using <div>; then it is a greater need to use
aria-labelledby, since a <div> element does not have any default
heading/caption element.
