           Summary: Allow DT to be after DD if there is only one DT/DD
                    pair in DL
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: LC1 HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: mtanalin@yandex.ru

Following should be valid:

<dl>
    <dd>Description</dd>
    <dt>Term</dt>
</dl>

Since the DL has only one DT and one DD, there is no an ambiguity here, it's
evident that DT and DD are interlinked, so this should be considered
semantically equivalent to:

<dl>
    <dt>Term</dt>
    <dd>Description</dd>
</dl>

Thanks.
