You are.  If something doesn't work in legacy browsers, and I can't
hack around it (with the acceptableness of the hack depending on the
difficulty of performing it and the value of the element), I won't use
it when writing pages, nor will many/most other authors.

While I'm sorta okay with <dt>/<dd> in <details>, I agree that within
<figure> it's confusing.  I'm putting my money on <h1>.  It has some
minor default display issues, but nothing major in my book (basically
identical to the problems inherent in using <h1> for all your
headings, which apparently aren't bad enough to kill that feature).
