[Bug 6543] Mint a new element for figure captions


--- Comment #1 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch>  2009-02-09 07:33:17 ---
IMHO the long-term author confusion from having yet another element (or likely
two, since <figcaption> wouldn't work for <details>) for this kind of semantic
far outweighs the short-term migration problem. In practice, <legend> will soon
not be any more of a problem than <section>.

(The DOM baggage is pretty minimal on HTMLLegendElement; I don't really see
that as a problem. It doesn't have any special behaviour like, say, <label>.)
