The caption element has been created for tables, but except if  
browsers have a special parsing for it. I wonder what it would give  
associated with other things like objects, lists, etc.
It's very common to see index of figures, index of tables, etc.

<ul>
     <caption>Here my caption</caption>
     ?
</ul>

Or something like this

<ul>
     <meta property="dc:title">Here my caption</meta>
     ?
</ul>

Though Ian seems to say that meta is put back in the HEAD element.

Q1: Is it happening only in tag soup parsing mode?
Q2: Would a data element which has not been created yet would solve  
the issue Q1?

<ul>
     <data property="dc:title">Here my caption</data>
     ?
</ul>
