Actually, when it comes to nl, I think it would be more useful if it 
were more like a definition list (with both a "term" and "description).  
The description can be optional, but it'd help in situations where the 
user's browser doesn't support CSS, and could even allow for CSS-based 
display of the description when the person hovers over the link.

Something like this:

<nl>
    <li href="http://www.test.com">Link</link>
    <desc>This is just a test link</desc>
...
</nl>

And so on.  This is probably best from an accessibility view, because 
the current proposal doesn't have any good methods of showing extra info 
about a link.
