I have some proposals which are *almost* as old (like caption for lists).

> <header><nav></nav></header>
> <article>Spider me only, I'm the content!</article>
> <aside>right column repetitive "junk"</aside>
> <footer></footer>

Interesting, but shouldn't spidering RSS a better idea, since you are
talking about CMS?

Plus, I myself see <aside> as a tag for footnotes.

The official spec for aside is still too vague and seems to allow both
your and my vision.
