I disagree on the use case situation, fwiw.

Especially now that CSS has dropped the ability to declaratively say 
"use the UA+user default style", at least having a way to 
programmatically ask for that style would allow polyfilling...

That's blocked on there being a stable spec on box:none, and then on 
implementing the resulting complexity.  Said complexity is much higher, 
at first glance, than that of getDefaultComputedStyle.
