Any scenario where your background is tailored more directly to the  
(flow of the) text or content within the box, but you explicitly have  
padding on it for legibility purposes or something alike.

I think the real challenge here is figuring out how to handle the new  
paradigm of having visually rounded corners / edges to a box, but  
still a rectangular "real" box that represents that content. Whether  
one implementation's scenario is more likely or more common than the  
other is less relevant in my opinion, as that issue persists in either  
case. It's just an extension of that problem, really.

And no I don't really have an idea for a solution on this (yet?) ;-)
