Why isn't "leftColumn" a semantic relationship? It means something,
doesn't it? There's no reason a bunch of designers couldn't get
together and agree on what "leftColumn" means just like the W3C
agreed on what "h1" means, and the microformats community agreed on
what "vevent" means. Until someone find a babblefish, that shared
meaning is all we have to communicate. That's as semantic as it gets.
