For me, Set 1 is too abstract. (Which box? Which default?)  I like 
self/content/item because I find it very self-descriptive.  I like 
outside/inside/items because it will match nicely with our future 
display-inside and display-outside.  I wouldn't have trouble remembering 
and applying the property names in Set 2 or Set 3.
