I think it’s just as proper/semantic as header and footer. Some content is just so defined, that there is no other way to place it in there. Sure, a menu can appear on the left side instead of the top of the page, but in 99% of all cases, it appears in a block that’s used as a header.
I understand your point, but when the content in a div with id “sidebar” will probably always be used as an actual sidebar, there’s not much wrong with it.
