[uf-discuss] Formatting of Movie Credits information

I'm looking to format movie credit information in a semantic and meaningful
way.  I've looked at XMDP as a possible way of assigning some meaning to CSS
classes, perhaps used in a definition list, but I would like to hear other
people's opinions on the subject.  Is this proper use of a definition list?
If not, what other formatting should I use?

Right now, my HTML would look something like this:

<dt id='title'>Title</dt>
  <dd>Walk the Line</dd>
<dt id='genre'>Genre</dt>
  <dd>Biography, Musical, Drama</dd>
<dt id='cast'>Cast</dt>
   <dd>Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Patrick, Ginnifer Goodwin,
Shelby Lynne</dd>

...etc etc.

Would an unordered list be a more appropriate way to format this
information?  Is there a microformat I could use?

The information I would like to present is:

First Billed Cast
Release Date
DVD Release Date
Running Time
MPAA Rating
Web Site

Thanks in advance, and my apologies if this is the incorrect forum for this
