comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
If I understand what you are doing properly, this provides a mechanism for making classes of offsets for various uses, which should make it easier if you want to manually pick your box sizes, but still isn't a mechanism for automatically sizing the boxes. Correct?

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
Your solution 3 works very nicely. I tried it on the notes I'm taking for statistical mechanics. That was 34 different boxes scattered on 184 different pages. All are sized appropriately, and look great.

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
How are the various arguments passed to your \tikzmarkin functions. For example in your solution 3, the equation content is #5. If, for example, I wanted to pass 'rounded corners' as your parameter #1, how would that be done? Or does #1 already have a value (what and from where?)

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
yes, the manual says to add stuff like: (0.1,-0.4)(-0.1,0.5) to specify the box boundaries. Makes it fairly useless unless you want to do a lot of error prone and unmaintainable boundary adjustment (for example in a larger document with 38 boxed equations).

comment TikZ based \boxed construct is causing pdflatex to hang
Sorry, made a MWE that is copyable. I use this typically with equation and dmath environments. I'll take a look at the hf-tikz package.

comment Cleveref and breqn packages don't play nice together
This doesn't work for me. The dmath displays as equation, but the counters aren't right. Your other answer appears to be required.

Inside the equation environment was what I was thinking of... which looks like what you did below.
