The rationale was basically that only allowing phrasing content in captions is
an arbitrary restriction that has no obvious benefits. There are also use cases
for allowing flow content children; for example scientific papers often have
tables with rather long captions that provide detail about the interpretation
of data in the table. Such captions benefit from additional structure enabled
by allowing flow content in captions.
