In paper format, the closest thing to a sidebar that I can think of are 
the table of contents, lists of figures and list of tables that you 
usually find in the beginning. 

Has anyone tried putting a table of contents in the sidebar? This might be
a useful way to navigate the current page. It'd also be familiar to how 
you can get a TOC in the sidebar of AcroRead.

A note on the side (pun intended). Would it be possible to fix the
position of the TOC vertically in the sidebar, in such a way that when you
scroll down the page you can still always see the TOC? This might be 
useful for very large pages (or it's a case of featuritis).
