I don't entirely agree with the issue as described. The use of the dfn element in the examples seem appropriate, and several examples demonstrate the use of dl/dt/dd without dfn.

That said I do think the definition for dl, and probably dt and dd too, could be improved for readability. Not to change the semantics, but just to make the semantics easier to understand.
