IMHO, it would be useful to make the Descriptor HowTo Guide more discoverable. As far as I can see, we are not linking to it from anywhere except the HOWTO index. Section, "Implementing Descriptors", in "Data Model" seems to be the most appropriate place.

I think "See also" is better than sidebar.
Many other sections in data-model chapter have it.

I don't want to do this.  The docs are the authoritative source and the how-to is a secondary source that is primarily about how particular descriptors are implemented.
