Thanks for the reply.

=== Re: 1. ===
As you and all of us have in common sense that dt/dd is a pair, it's more
semantic to group them together.

And because definition list is a list, a list should have list items. However,
the current structure of definition list make dt and dd looks like each of them
is an independent list item, and are also hard to read.

Sometimes it's even difficult to style definition list because of its lack of
li element (dt and dd are not group together).


=== Re: 2. ===
According to English dictionaries, "small print" is used in contracts, and is
containing qualifications or restrictions. Therefore its definition is quite
different with "note". "Note" can be used at anywhere, but "small print" can't
be used like that.


=== Re: 3. ===
That's also a nice usage of definition list. But as it was described above,
sometimes it's hard to style definition list because of its lack of li element.
