Hi Leif,

To me a second caption seems like it would be confusing for authors
but others may disagree.

Matt said on the survey that the details proposal was overly
complicated for authors. It required additional effort on the part of
authoring tools and AT, and reeducation on the part of authors. He
talked about not resigning ourselves to contortion at this phase of
the development of the spec. I think that is good advise.

Best Regards,
