The idea here is that this should be conforming (if generated by a photo album

    <h1>My ducks</h1>
    <img src="photo001.jpeg">

...in the same way that this is:

    <figcaption>My ducks</figcaption>
    <img src="photo001.jpeg">

...or this is:

   <img src="photo001.jpeg" title="My ducks">

...because they all essentially have the same semantics: an image with a label.

Why would this be bad?
