That could make sense.

I recall that some listees have raised *strong* objections to the idea
of using the <dl> for anything other than a word/term and its
definition. And since Fred Smith and Leasha Jones are not the
"definition" of the Cashier's Office...

But still, I know what you mean about the semantic association. But
wouldn't a heading *imply* an association with the content that
follows it? Maybe not as tightly as a <dt> and a <dd>.
