Now resolved for 'images'.  The title replaces the <caption> content
of mediaobject, and is working well for cross references. 
Thanks Norm.

Either I'm abusing it, or its richer than described. I'm starting
to use it for programlistings, so that I can do the same xref
stuff. I get the title, automatic numbering etc.
  (I'm getting that feeling at the back of my neck again.. is there
another similar wrapper that I've missed, which does for programlisting
what figure does for mediaobject!)
