The on this list beloved <fig> allowed the use of a <caption>.
As far as I recall, <caption> allowed 'align = top'. It wouldn't
really place a graphic below something, as well as put something
above the graphic. 

<fig> is dead, <object> is alive. The latest draft I've seen doesn't
have <caption>s. (Or <credit>, or <overlay>).

You could also (mis)use a table.
