the correct way to implement this feature would be to use nested tables:
you put your table caption into the header of a wrapper table, and the
data into the cell. Unfortunately, this won't work with the current shape
of XEP because of limitations on headers.
In some cases, a tricky workaround may help:
background="url(caption.pdf) top left no-repeat">
... actual table follows...
This adds a padding to the block that contains the table, and draws
an image in the upper left corner of the padding rectangle, on each page
where the table happens to leave traces. The only problem with
this approach, and a very serious one: it is hard to generate
table caption texts as separate images.
