the problem with 'title' is a problem of all microformats that use/need
soemthing like a label/title/heading/youProbablyKnowWhatImean so I figure
this list is the right place. that right?

by the way I didn't get an answer to my original question: since i'm not a
native speaker i would like to get some advice on the subtle differences in
meaning. from what i understand

heading   has a connotation of "layout", mixing style with structure,
caption   is more of a byline to something than the top or beginning of it,
label     is more attached to a thing, not so much an integral part of it.

would be nice to get some help
