Sure, but think about what a caption author expects when they decide to use a
50% wide box and don't provide explicit positioning.

A 50% wide box with left aligned text is most naturally aligned to the left
edge of the viewport. As you can see in your example above, it doesn't look
like it's left aligned at all - it looks like it's misplaced somewhere random.
