Summary of Issue: Technique has almost no AT support
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Doesn't really work in modern AT:

Some WCAG failures trigger fewer problems than this sufficient technique.

Proposed Change:
Remove technique. 

Worth noting that an alternative technique based on FIGCAPTION does seem to work well:
