Fair enough. You can use after_title and after_widget to wrap the
contents of the widget in a div. That's the best way, although as you
pointed out, it's not 100% reliable.

The thing is, the widget itself controls what its contents are,
completely. Before and after widget will always be displayed, but
whether the widget displays the before and after title bits is really
entirely up to the widget. So there's no 100% way to do what you're
asking, since you can't control what the contents of the widget are.
