Could you clarify the use case for doing that?

No.  An <aside> inside an <article> or other <section> is already easy 
to distinguish from one that is only within the <body>.

e.g.

<body>
   <header>...</header>

   <article>
     <p>...
     <aside>... Pull Out ...</aside>
     <p>...
   </article>

   <aside>
     ... Sidebar ...
   </aside>

   <footer>...</footer>
</body>
