Yes, I also quite like the analogy with dl/ul/ol. But it may
be confusing when using dt and dd as child elements (as in
the current spec for dialog):
  <cl>
    <dt>
    <dd>
    ...
  </cl>

That could be resolved by introducing elements ct and cd:
  <cl>
    <ct>
    <cd>
    ...
  </cl>

and that I guess can be regarded as making things better OR
worse depending on your focus...

Best regards
Mike Wilson
