In the meantime I rethought my proposal, but for the sake of being backwards compatible with HTML4: I think it should take a "figure" class (only when it is only images and that definition line), like this:

<dl class="figure">
<dt><img alt="alt text" src=""></dt>
<dd class="figcaption">the caption</dd>

like this i would be very similar to the HTML5 stuff (and could be easily handled in CSS with `.figure {}` in HTML4 or just `figure {}` in HTML5):

<img alt="alt text" src="" >
<figcaption>the caption/figcaption>
