I just noticed that CSS2.1 defines margin, padding, and content /edges/
but not the boxes, even though the term "margin box" and "border box" is
used elsewhere in the spec. Here's a proposal for adding them. (It's an
editorial change, so doesn't need to be done before CR.)

In section 8.1 Box dimensions,

Add to the definition of "margin edge"
  | The four margin edges define the box's <dfn>margin box</dfn>.
Add to the definition of "border edge"
  | The four margin edges define the box's <dfn>border box</dfn>.
Add to the definition of "padding edge"
  | The four padding edges define the box's <dfn>padding box</dfn>.
Add to the definition of "content edge"
  | The four margin edges define the box's <dfn>content box</dfn>.
