Doesn't the role="img" mean that:

A) The contents of the element represents an image and thus AT shouldn't read
B) That the element, at least from an AT perspective, no longer semantically is
   figure but rather an image, thus the rules for how it's captioned by
   <figcaption> no longer applies?

I'm admittedly very unsure about B. It's never been very clear to me how it's
intended that ARIA should change semantics. Pointers more than welcome.
