Methinks we could easily overcome the semantic problems with the <dialogue>
element if we renamed it to <transcript>.

What I find silly with the current <dialog> proposal is that it just  
can't handle a lot of trivial cases which would otherwise be perfect  
use cases. It can't because you can't include non-spoken events to be  
inserted in the sequence.

But then if you allow non-spoken events another problem arise: are  
dialogs with no spoken part at all allowable? Should the document  
suddently become invalid when someone deletes the last bit of spoken  
text in a <dialog> and there remains only some timestamps or events?
