Yeah, it wasn't.  Note that the resolution covers *new* terms, and
says to convert old terms *where possible*.  We hadn't come up with
any good names for content/etc-box, so it stays as it is for now.

Hm, did that not get minuted?  There was definitely discussion about
this, but it might have fallen to the wayside.  The decision is to
scale the geometry with the width.  This maintains the same "shape".
