I don't follow. There are plenty of elements and attributes whose
relationship is contiguous or defined in a linear way and they work
fine. This comment suggests that writing code in a way that defines the
relationships in a "non-serial" or more lateral way is somehow better?
Or am I missing something?
I guess you can use of aria-describedby to create programmatic
associations with content that is in order parts of the document or
indeed in other resources/URIs but how is this somehow better?
