I don't know of a more general-purpose "citation" set of elements for
giving information about non-books. But it doesn't seem outside the
spirit of <bibl> to use it for citation information on any kind of
item, whether a book, a printed image, etc. Is there another, better
set of elements I've somehow missed?
Perhaps <bibl> should be renamed something else to make this
clearer--or else there should be an <attribution> element somewhere
