Sentinal vs Marauder, Dispellable DoTs?

So I hear that some classes can dispel a Sentinal's DoTs (Cauterize and the like) due to them being elemental, yet those same classes CAN'T dispel a Marauder's DoTs (Rupture and the like) because they're internal. Is this true and what classes are the offenders?

Dispel mechanic is never based on type of damage(some skills don't even have damage) but on type of attack and resulting debuff. Those dots always show up in log as physical, but for some reason I thought they were considered force for purpose of dispelling. So yeah, someone else will have to clarify this part for you, all I can say for certain is that damage type doesn't matter here.

Also, one little funny fact: while Cauterize is supposed to deal elemental damage, it deals internal damage instead.

almost everyone can cleanse sentinel/marauder dots. all scoundrels, all comandos and sages as well (basically all classes that have a cleanse)
