What you are doing is varying the paddings, not adding some other component
to the box model.  Obviously that means that the standard box model won't
allow you to specify the height that you want.

Horizontal centring is done by modifying margins, not padding.  Whilst few
people use borders, you have introduced an asymmetry.

I have more thoughts, but I need time to clarify them.
