I assume the motivation is CSS.  E.g., you would want to put a border
around the actual contents of a figure, excluding the caption, but
even if that included multiple elements.  You could always do it with
a div, of course, maybe with a class, so the question is whether it's
worth it.  Semantically it adds nothing.
