I don't see a reason, although you can do it with polygon and not box.

Seems like an old oversight.

Ok. If I ever get some time I'll submit a patch to bring everything in-line (there's other missing operators as well).

Also, I can't find the ~ operator defined for polygon in the
documentation, am I missing something?

~ is deprecated, "contains" is preferentially spelled @> now.

Ok, I'll keep that in mind.
