Well, I'm not sure if it's not already clear that, without a
definition term, there can be no new definition descriptions. It is on
the same route as the SECTION element for XHTML 2.0, which allows you
to group elements, but I doubt it it is of much use. Example:

<p>Paragraph related to the heading
<p>Paragraph also related, as we tend to think that new sections
automatically start with a new heading, not with another paragraph

I think it's kinda double. But hey, maybe I'm missing something?
