This is always a good argument (similar things should look similar), however, I think in our case we can afford to use a "nicer" color in the sidebar, since it is already spacially separated from the contents (by having its own column on the left).

I would turn this argument around. Since the side bar is already recognisable as separate, colour need not be used to show that it is separate. (See [1]) This means we are free to use colour to show something else. This is an opportunity. What would the reason for wasting it be?

I wasn't *recommending* pale yellow. I was trying to be neutral with respect to hue and therefore quoted - Patrick's colour - as an example. On it is pale yellow too.
So what/where is the current state?
