They're in the UK Highway Code (the gov't driver's manual) as "Advanced
Stop Lines": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_stop_line . The term
"bike box" seems to be ambiguous: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bike_box

Work it into  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dstop
maybe - or better still,

Alternatively, it might be seen as a helper tag for traffic signals (or
the equivalent crossing type), though that will suffer from the
directionality problems with the original highway=stop.
