Could I encourage you to describe the issue in terms of a problem rather 
than in terms of a solution? This wiki page is much better than some of 
the others for this, but

   "A change to definition lists (dl elements) to allow explicit 
   indication of term/definition grouping in markup has been discussed."

...isn't the problem (presumably), the problem is more something like:

   "There is no way to put the value/description part of a name-value item 
   after the name/term part."

This is a very minor request, though, as this issue really does have the 
use cases listed, which is a significant step forward from many of the 
other issues. Please do continue this trend! :-)
