outer[Height/Width](true) improperly including negative margins

I'm not sure this is actually a bug, because it depends on how you want height and width to be defined, and how margins affect those lengths.

This is problematic when the full outer height of an element is needed, but one of the margins is negative. The negative margin does not always affect the actual dimension of the element.

Here is a quick and dirty jsFiddle to demonstrate the values. http://jsfiddle.net/wxxSQ/

I've looked through your test case and I honestly don't feel like this is a bug. Should you need to handle full outer heights with a negative margin where you want custom behaviour to affect the actual element's dimensions, a cssHook could probably be used to handle your case. http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.cssHooks/
