   As nobody replied; my thoughts on this are that containers of all
sorts are expected to take into account their border width regardless
of children, its just an expected behavior that would be painful
to change (and its one guideline for another, doesnt really change
much. not to mention changing that would subtly break API by
changing expected outputs).

And no real need to worry either; border-width is not a style
property and should be setup explicitly in the interface (isn't
the default value zero anyway ?).

Containers that expect to be empty at times should simply
be aware of their padding.
