Not surprisingly, there is certainly not an abundance of case law addressing sidetrack agreements in the context of coverage disputes.
The greater mystery than what a sidetrack agreement is may be what it's even doing in the policy--along with some of the other definitions of "insured contract" that are also pretty obscure, with likely almost no applicability.
