and why not just implement a mix of for and headers attribut on dd for 
something like :

<dl>
<dt id="term1">term 1</dt>
<dt id="term2">term 2</dt>
<dd for="term1 term 2">description<dd>
</dl>

it's basically the same mechanism as the headers attribut but i think 
the name "for" for the attribute is more appropriate since the dt is not 
headers (or maybe we can just name it terms <dd terms="x y z">....)
