The <figgroup> element is used primarily for specialization, in order to create segments within a figure. The element can nest itself, which allows it to create complex specialized structures (such as the nestable groups of syntax within a syntax diagram). Figure groups can be used to contain multiple cross-references, footnotes or keywords.
