Like Korby I'm interested in a way to semantically identify questions and answers. Frances' suggestion of using dl/di/dt/dd would work assuming the <dl> indicates that it contains questions. One example usage would be to list unanswered questions:
I can also see value in knowing that free text was matched in an answer. A definition list alone wouldn't add enough semantic info for either case.

I've not come across a "Q&A" specific format being mentioned before -
so this is probably something new :)
You could start gathering a few examples of Q&A systems out there (to
understand what's already being done) and then take a look at how one
might go about marking these with existing formats (if at all - can't
simple Question/Answers be marked with definition lists alone?).
