I can imagine that a list of figures is a difficult problem in some
other back-ends.  However, its absence in LaTeX export seems unusual.

Would it make sense to have this work as expected for LaTeX export (and
perhaps other back-ends where it does make sense) and have other
back-ends insert a comment?

Not a big thing, obviously, but I was surprised when it didn't work.

All the best,
