+1 for consistency, as I already suggested in 

Whether we go for straight bullets of definition lists...no particular 
preference either way - though unless I'm mistaken, there's no major 
advantage with definition lists in how they're announced by current AT, 
so the semantic benefit is theoretical at the moment (this may well have 
changed, but from memory definition lists are just announced as lists, 
with no particular "this is the term, and this is the definition for 
this term" kind of announcement).
