The aside element should accept the for attribute (as does the label element)
so that it can identify itself as related to something on the page (e.g. the
main article) even if it is located elsewhere (e.g. in a side panel). The spec
currently says that aside is always related to the content that contains the
aside element, and it's not clear whether or how the author could then position
it in a side panel or navigation area.

There may be other elements to which this would also apply.
