Well, my box is defined by xmin,xmax (repeat for y, z).

Without the offset, you have to assume "xmin=0" or "xmin=-edges[0]/2".

So, yes, offset is part of the box to me. If we think also (for the future, I am
not suggesting anything for now) of continuum methods, there is no "obvious"
choice for xmin.
