Would it be wrong to view that as a caption element - similar to 
<figcaption>?  I admit that headings, lists, tables sounds "too much" 
for a caption. But then, again: One of the changes from HTML4 to HTML5 
is that the <caption> element can take exactly those elements. I am 
also pretty certain that, typically, the element - whatever its name - 
would not contain whether headings, list or tables ...
