It's not standard, but the idea is interesting. At least, as long as the
2 aside containers contain side-notes to the article or something
similar. Aside is not meant as a presentational positioning but as a
logical grouping.

I do often use the w3c aria landmark role values as class values

Additionally it might be an idea to check RDFa and f.ex. dublin core for
more useful class names.
