Here's the discussion about it on www-style:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Mar/0325.html

There are a few solutions here:
1. special-case the resolved value of width to include text about box-sizing
2. add language to resolved value about the round-trippable nature of resolved
value, as called out in Tab's response, which is basically something like "the
used value of a css property should remain unchanged if the value is set to the
resolved value of the property". Of course, that's just a suggestion.

I think #2 is a better solution, as it future proofs against other special
cases where the semantic value of a property changes based on a different
property's value.
