[uf-discuss] <dl> inside <address>

I've been wondering about this, the HTML5 spec uses "flow content". Is that the same as saying "inline".
I was hoping to use address around a dl as well, but it looks like we need to wrap the content within a dd, but then we lose the dt labeling text.

I thought it might be something like that... shouldn't the html5 validator scream at me for that then?
