I agree.  The current list types have important structural differences 
- <dl> presents a list of data pairs, <ol> presents a list whose 
ordering is important, and <ul> presents a "grab-bag" list.  <nl> is 
just the same as <ul> in this respect, differring only in it's role in 
the document.  Now that there exists an attribute to express this 
"role," there seems to be no reason to create an <nl> element.
