There is a difference (at least in sDocBook there is):
<figure> needs a title that will be rendered as caption;
<img> (<mediaobject><imageobject>...) doesn't.

Right now sDocBook-figures get rendered in Forrest-Document-XML
as tables with two rows: one for the <figure> (or <img>?), one
for the caption. This looses some information that might be used
for rendering in PDF, e.g. that caption and image always should
stick together on the same page ...

Then, I don't know about XTML2, so ...
