bug#18170: 24.3.92; window-atom and window-side parameters

in e.g. (info "(elisp) Deleting Windows") (and some other places), it is
     Otherwise, this function obeys the `window-atom' or `window-side'
     window parameter, if any. *Note Window Parameters::.

But in (info "(elisp) Window Parameters"), the only occurrence of
window-side is in:
     There are additional parameters `window-atom' and `window-side';
     these are reserved and should not be used by applications.

What are these parameters ?

The docstring of delete-other-windows has :

    Otherwise, if WINDOW is part of an atomic window, call this
    function with the root of the atomic window as its argument.  If
    WINDOW is a non-side window, make WINDOW the only non-side window
    on the frame.  Side windows are not deleted.  If WINDOW is a side
    window signal an error.

but I don't get it, and I'm not even sure it is related to the above

I tried
   'window-side t)
but that doesn't signal any error. So perhaps window-side parameter
isn't about side windows at all ? After a bit more of fiddling, I
understand that (display-buffer-in-side-window BUFFER ALIST) is used to
make the side windows, but that isn't mentionned in the elisp manual.
