Now that's a good idea too.

If the image caption "problem" is going to be solved it should be done  
based on your suggestion (extending the caption element with a |for|  
attribute), or by adding the |caption| attribute to the <img> element.  
Both provide same functionality, both are backwards compatible.

IMHO, very good!
