In fact :-)

But my sample don't talk about what's this problem, it talk about the
fact that even if something may look better with a bad implementation,
this is not a reason to decide to dismiss the good implementation.

Currently, you also can use -prefix-box-sizing to restore IE6's model
in modern browsers. But, as I said, this is not the question.
