The part that specifically deals with "which markup element should be 
used in HTML", i.e. the techniques, is purely informative 
(non-normative)...so feel free to ignore the advice there at your 
heart's content if you feel that DL satisfies the (normative) success 
criterion you're addressing (e.g. that the relationship/structure you're 
trying to mark up with the DL is appropriately conveyed in particular to 
AT users).
