Yes for implementations that support side captions, but otherwise "top" as
the initial value is fine. That can be defined well enough in the spec
without introducing the logical values.

The CSS Logical properties are still very early draft, and is subject to
change. The caption-side property does not worth to make an exception,
which could cause troubles when large changes are made to the spec.
