JSlink and independently rendered widgets

I was going through the examples for panel links. I noticed that all the examples use a final pn.Row() or pn.Column() call. When I try to display the widgets and the graphs in different pn.Row/Column() calls, then the linking doesn’t work.

To make it more clear:

from bokeh.plotting import figure

p = figure(width=300, height=300)
xs = np.linspace(0, 10)
r = p.line(xs, np.sin(xs))

width_slider = pn.widgets.FloatSlider(name='Line Width', start=0.1, end=10)
width_slider.jslink(r.glyph, value='line_width')

# this is the original example and linking does work
pn.Column(width_slider, p)

# linking here doesn't work

# This does work too, because I guess that the outer pn.Row() call allows the linking to happen

The question is: Is it possible to get jslinks to work when the widgets are rendered independently?

To give a bit more context. I have a dashboard with some widgets. I click on a button and I create an hv.DynamicMap. The map gets created on the fly. Is it possible to link the map to some of the existing widgets?
