The Guidelines say:
The <figure> element is included so as to enable encoders to record the
presence of printers' ornaments or other illustrative material found

<figure> is also useful for marking the position of the advertisement on
the title page.
The suggestion for the use <figure> in this case stems from
consideration of the experience of composing layout both with
electronic means and with paper & glue ...
An alternative approach would be to markup a <table> for indicating the
content and placement the various blocks of text (advertisement, title
proper, etc.) and nesting the <table> in a <div> with an attribute @type
with the value "title page".
