<caption>, <figcaption>, <seccaption>, <divcaption>, etc.

Each time when I see <figcaption> I want to ask:

What is conceptually wrong with using <caption> as it is in <figure>'s? 
Why do we need element with such ugly name as <figure>?
Why other grouping elements have no such caption counterparts?

It is enough to define something like this:

caption { display:block; }
table > caption { display:table-caption; }

in UA's default style sheet and we can use this element with its perfect 
semantic meaning.

My pardon if it was discussed already.

Andrew Fedoniouk.
