Yes.

That's because <div> does not properly serve this purpose. Your suggestion  
is overusing <div>.

Can an aural browser be sure your markup is actually representing an image  
with its caption?

You could also use:

<div class="image-caption">
<img />
<p>caption</p>
</div>

However, this looks like a microformat. Nonetheless, it's better than  
leaving out the class attribute.
