It would be nice to have some sort of free-to-use guideline, helpful if you
work in a team, read other people's source, exchanging/ distributing
stylesheets, etc. I don't think there should be any "official"
standardization, as in: a certain software/ robot expects this or that class

Here are some typical repeating areas I define for pages, with varying

 - navigation bar in page/ navigational frame in frameset (navbar, navig,
nav, navigation...)
 - main contentual area in page/ content frame in frameset (content, cont,
page, text, textual...)
 - header area in page, or logo/ header frame in frameset (header...)
 - advertising (ad, advert, banner...)
 - copyright information (copyr, coypright...)
 - illustration area, usually left or right of the text-flow (illust,
illustration, pic, image...)
 - related content/ link collection at the end of an article (links...)
 - footnote (footnote)
 - table of contents (toc, TOC)
 - download area (download, file, files...)
 - introduction (intro, introduction)
 - author info/ signature (author)
 - date (date)
