Validator is just a helping tool. This tool cannot prevent all sorts of errors
-- this is realidad, just put up with this.

For example, the validator cannot detect situations where blockquote is used
instead of div, and vice versa -- it's just _not of validator's
responsibility_. Exactly the same applies to DT/DD in particular.

The fact that formerly you could use validator to detect DT/DD swapping is not
more than just _side_ effect of current impractical spec definition. This side
effect at all cannot be a reason to ignore real-world needs.

So don't complicate things, throw your scruples overboard, stop unneeded flame,
and just accept the change that has more than enough arguments and real-world
examples mentioned here to accept this.

Thanks.
