I guess I didn't give this much thought. This should probably be better:

   label?, ((dt+, dd+)+ | di+)

>>   (dt, dd)+

What I meant was:

   (dt+, dd+)

I'm not sure I agree using a definition list with only terms, and no 
definitions makes sense, though. Can't think of any circumstances where 
that would be appropriate, got any examples?

(I hope I didn't mess up something, content model-wise again :-) )
