"The CSS box model describes the rectangular boxes that are generated for elements in the document tree."

"Each box has a content area (e.g. text, an image, etc.) and optional surrounding padding, border, and margin areas;"

-- pg. 81 CSS2 Spec (PDF format)

From those line I get the impression that all HTML elements are boxes and should be able to be styled like a box. I believe this is what the engineers got from the spec too.
