Interesting question. Should we disallow sections inside <li>s or <dd>s?
Currently we've assumed that they should be allowed, but it's true that it may
be a bit weird.

Are there good use cases for an <li> or <dt> — or indeed <td> — to contain
a sectioning element or headings (I guess other than <aside> or <nav>, for
which use cases seem reasonable)?

Is there any harm in list items having subsections? It might screw up the
outline algorithm (<li> and <dd> aren't sectioning roots), but maybe that's
worth fixing separately? You could only have a list start in one section and
end in a section of higher rank if you weren't using <aside>/<article>/<nav>,
so at least you know it's all within the same kind of section...
