 I'm going to close this out. Changing this would definitely be bad for
 backwards compatibility in themes.

 However, after this ticket was created the markup output by a gallery
 shortcode was changed in [27302] to use `<figure>`, `<div>` and
 `<figcaption>` tags instead when a theme opts in to HTML5 markup using
 `add_theme_support( 'html5', 'gallery' );` (see #26697). So while this was
 not technically fixed, it is fixed in the sense that valid HTML5 markup
 can be used instead of the `<dl>`, `<dt>` and `<dd>` tags that were used

 I've opened up #56206 as a follow up to this to improve the historical
 references within the function's documentation in the form of `@since`
 tags documenting when certain attributes were added and changes like the
 ones in [27302] were made.
