Naming isn’t really something that implementers, i.e. browser vendors,
 should have the last say in. Like @astearns says, it’s about the 
“author experience”.

The respective level-3 module to replace the level-2 reference would 
be [[CSS-**BOX**]](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-box/) if I’m not 
mistaken. At the risk of sounding annoying, the `box-` prefix (and 
`box` shorthand) seems appropriate to me, although it is implied in 
most properties currently.

(Fun fact: `box-sizing` was put into 
[[CSS-UI]](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-ui/#propdef-box-sizing) back 
in the day – i.e. 200*X* –, just because it was thought to be one of 
the earliest modules to reach REC status that wasn’t feature-frozen
