The way I've thought about doing this in the past would be some kind of 
generalization of group-starting-with and group-ending-with, to 
something like

group-matching="image, caption*, table"

But it's a lot of machinery addressing a rather specialized requirement, 
so it's hard to see it ever making the cut.
