I'm not sure what you mean by this. padding-box is well-defined, and is not the same as the scrollable overflow, sure. So the result you get is well-defined, if a little weird.

That said, I agree the use-cases for the lesser boxes seem pretty minimal; I think we just reused the box definitions because they were there.

What do you mean by this? That switching to margin-box would cause a large behavior change for them?
