Another reason was that some browsers already implemented support for it
(MacIE, Opera, Mozilla) and that WinIE (all versions excluding WinIE 6.0
in standard compliant rendering) implemented the wrong box model. So
this was an easy way to workaround browser limitations, which was
already widely implemented so it was a logical move (imo) to include it
in the 'css3-ui' draft (and later it will be placed in 'css3-box').
