@TremayneChrist based on the opinions of people, if we say Box that implies that you should be able to produce the rect when taking into account the context of other APIs such as `getBoundingClientRect()` authors may expect a box to have all of the same information. Size is more accurate for what's being returned **now**. There's also an argument to be made for authors asking to observer `content-box` and then getting `contentSize` which is also somewhat confusing even if the name itself is more representative of the content within.

What are your thoughts, which name would you want?
