If you were to write a validator, I hope you'd read the whole spec, not just
refer to one part and take it out of context.  Specifically:

"An HTML element must have contents that match the requirements described in
the element's content model."

"Content model:
Zero or more groups each consisting of one or more dt elements followed by one
or more dd elements."

However, it would arguably be good to be clearer about this, so I think we
should leave the bug open and not try to preempt Ian's decision.
