[whatwg] Should target '_search' be taken as part of HTML 5 spec?

Target '_search' makes a link open in a sidebar (Opera) or sidebar-like 
window (IE). For some offline web apps would be cool to open sidebar by 
just one click. In other browsers (Firefox) web content could be open in 
a sidebar only by creating a bookmark, marking it as to open in a 
sidebar, use (click) that bookmark.

So, there are tendencies and voices to open web content in a sidebar in 
all browsers but it is not taken as a standard. I would really like this 
feature to be available in all browsers.
