Hi,

A list is a list is a list. It can certainly have different usage in different context, but that is exactly the aims of XHTML 2.0 stated in the introduction of the document.
	dl, di, dt, dd, nl, ol, ul, li
Replace all of this by a single structure and then define appropriate role attributes. For example,

<ul property="unordered|ordered|definition|menu">
	<li>item 1<li>
	<li>item 2<li>
	<li>item 3<li>
</ul>

In the case of definition list, it could be something similar to:

<ul property="definition">
	<li property="description">An 
	<span id="def-acronym" property="term">acronym</span> 
	is a word formed from the initial letters or groups of letters 
	of words in a set phrase or series of words.<li>
</ul>
