Re: [css-ui-3] box-sizing: padding-box

Hi Florian,

Firstly thank you for asking, this is not a game changer at all for me as I
say it can be implemented using calc. (Also thanks for understanding I
meant padding-box too).
The one use-case that I had recently was implementing a variable padding
based on page context on a fixed width avatar element.

I'm more interested in talking about implementing a margin-box which would
have to be future levels of the specification if it were to ever be
considered (I'm convinced that there won't be implementor interest either).

So yes, please progress forward as the lack of padding-box doesn't
specifically harm me.

Kind regards
