Your proposal makes sense, but I'm not sure about the labelledby
relationship between the container div and the image. I would have
thought that the image would have the labelledby attribute,
referencing the caption in the paragraph that owns the image, and that
there should also be a describedby attribute to the paragraph. So the
resulting structure would be (content trimmed):

<div class="caption-and-img">
  <p aaa:owns="img1" id="d1">
    <strong id="c1">Caption ...</strong>: describes ...

    <img id="img1"
         alt="The contract model with accessibility API's"

    For more information see ...
