By default WordPress media supports the following fields:
• Alt Text
I believe WordPress should have an additional one to support users in media crediting/citation.
In an image block this should then be mapped to the
figcaption > citeelement to provide correct semantics.
In addition to encouraging users to correctly credit media it will give theme authors the ability to target and style the cite separately to the caption text in figcaption.
I’m currently doing this with custom fields and rewriting the image block output but I strongly believe this should be core functionality.
