It is fairly simple, but it is only that simple for some implementations of outline (like Chrome’s).

For instance, in FF, if something overflows the box, a rectangular outline will encompass the both the box and the overflowing content.
in IE and presto, it won’t even me rectangular anymore. This illustrates the differences: http://jsfiddle.net/h2op8ao4/

Either way, this approach is still simpler.
