Semantics of <dl>

A definition list defines the relationship between text that the user
can identify (dictionary terms, faq questions, a key) and the text the
user desires (dictionary definitions, faq answers, a value).

This describes how humans and most computers parse. They find what
they know (in databases it's usually the primary key) and then the
dictionary allows them to grab at what they're actually searching for.
