I found it interesting under the "New Elements" section, the <dialog>
element, and how in the example it is wrapped around <dt> and <dd>
elements, in light of a recent thread about the proper structural
mark-up for a Question and Answer list.

Boy, talks about a *loose* interpretation of <dt> and <dd>. :^o

Also noted with a chuckle under "Absent Elements"...
