Subject: CAPTION element for OBJECT?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Is there any reason why HTML 3.0's CAPTION element [1] for use with FIG 
[2] hasn't been re-introduced with the OBJECT element in HTML 4.0?  It 
seems a natural match, and image/object captions are constantly asked for 
in newsgroups like comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html.  Currently many 
authors abuse tables to place (visually) a caption with an image, but a 
CAPTION element with OBJECT would make that unnecessary.
