I think that are good examples and Symphony has used it in a good way
too. But I am also looking forward to make more more use of it to via
extensions and integrate in other systems. It can be a file browser on a
CMS  where you can checkin/checkout files, can share files, etc.. It can
be a property SideBar as we know it from Symphony.

A SideBar in general is smooth and nice way to integrate in the office
UI and provide fast access to new interesting features. And last but not
least to make use of wide screen displays ;-)
