What semantic markup would be useful for a complete FAQ?

  <div class="qaset">
    <h1>Microformats FAQ</h1>
    <p>This page document frequently asked questions about microformats…</p>
    <div class="qadiv">
      <h2>&lt;div> and &gt;span> semantics</h2>
      <dl class="qa">
        <dt class="qtn">Is it semantically meaningless to use divs?</dt>
        <dd class="ans">…</dd>

Overkill? Or missing something?
