Captions for Figures and Tables

One feature that I've just noticed that I would quite like is better
control over the rendering of captions. The current HTML 3.0 DTD specifies
captions as:

<!ELEMENT CAPTION - - (%text;)+ -- table or figure caption -->

This precludes things like:

<caption><h1>A Large Caption</h1></caption>

Should this be allowed? or should this wait until style sheets? e.g.

<caption class=bigcaps>A Large Caption</caption>
