This is probably a question too late, but although I can't think of any 
case where margin-box would be useful, I can think of cases where 
padding-box would be useful.

Why only content-box and border-box? Just for simplicity for the 
implementations? (I would think that once you have box model switching 
in code, adding a case for padding-box to leave out the border would be 
nearly trivial.)
