Ok, I'll think about using textobject instead.  I overlooked it.

Now that I see the description of textobject 
(http://www.docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/textobject.html), it looks like it 
was originally intended to be used only with mediaobject:
     A textobject is a wrapper containing a textual description
     of a media object and its associated meta-information. A
     textobject is only allowed in mediaobject as a fallback...
But (now?) it's also used with CALS tables, informaltable, 
programlisting, and several other elements.  Perhaps the Description 
should be updated?
