I need to add that every table is a nested list of 2 dimensions. So a
result list of a DB query is still one of the best examples where a
table is justified.

If you take definition list very strictly lists with labels like
details lists or forms are no definition lists.

I personally prefer a wider understanding of DL, also for labeled
lists. W3C follows the wider understanding:


Another application of DL, for example, is for marking up dialogues,
with each DT naming a speaker, and each DD containing his or her words.

Definition lists vary only slightly from other types of lists in that
list items consist of two parts: a term and a description. The term is
given by the DT element and is restricted to inline content. The
description is given with a DD element that contains block-level content.

Mark: a  DD element that contains block-level content.
