IMO we should also deprecate the "cssClass" and "width" box macro parameters.

If the user wants to use a different class or width he can use:

(% class="..." style="width:..." %){{box/}}

or for standalone (before we add a shortcut in the parser, see http://jira.xwiki.org/jira/browse/XRENDERING-75):

(% class="..." style="width:..." %)(((

I also find it a bit strange to be able to add any wiki content to the title and I don't see the title as necessary. Also right now if you have a title but no content the macro doesn't work (content is mandatory).
