A suggestion for a workaround: You might get decent results using
Pandoc[1] and pandoc-mode[2].  Pandoc can parse HTML and convert it to
org-mode markup.  There is also a helpful answer on stackexchange[3]
(just replace "markdown" with "org).  You might be able to use the above
tools to integrate the mentioned techniques into org's capture mechanism.
