A parallel situation is described minutely in the paper below :

study and text encoding, with examples from medieval texts

The problem is, I take it, not the mechanism of linkage itself, but the way
of conveying *meaning* implied in the linkage.
Indentations are spaces at the head of lines, and here texts and images
are linked. The <p> tags explicitly tell their meanings (significance), not
the topological/graphical informations of the text in page.
The <figure> tag for the Fraser cases tells no more than a simple linkage
tag of "these spaces-at-head are linked to text here" tells, and may fall
far short of what is aimed.
