frivoal has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css2] Apply the patch from css-ui/box-sizing ==
CSS2, and in particular the [Visual formatting model details](https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html) makes a non rigorous use of terms like `width`, `min-width`, `max-width`, `height`, etc, either to refer to the value of these properties, or to the <a href="https://drafts.csswg.org/css-sizing/#inner-size">inner sizes</a>. That was not particularly problematic when initially written, but has become more of a problem since the introduction of the `box-sizing` property.

CSS-UI-3 has a disambiguating patch in its [section defining box-sizing](https://www.w3.org/TR/css-ui-3/#box-sizing), but that is hard to read, and as per the resolution in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2458#issuecomment-380016780, it should be applied and inlined int CSS2.
