Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I concurr with Simon. In fact, I'd go even further. It's far more
likely that an author who has a single <dl> with first a <dd> and then a <dt>
has accidentally typoed the element names and meant for the <dd> to be a <dt>
and the <dt> to be a <dd>. As such, it's our responsibility to make it easy for
validators to catch this.

I would recommend using <figure> for this.
