I don't see how contact information could be a <sidebar>. The sidebar
element represents a section of a page that consists of content that is
tangentially related to the content around the sidebar element, and which
could be considered separate from that content. That doesn't describe
"contact information for the document".
Now, if you meant that the contact information would be _rendered_ in a
bar on the side (which is very different from having it in a <sidebar>!)
then that's what CSS is for.
(Maybe <sidebar> needs a better name? Any suggestions?)

Yeah. The footer. Not a section.
