How important is empty trunk space as opposed to enclosure space? Say you have 4 cubes gross in your entire trunk, and your sub is optimized exactly 3.5 cubes ported. Would it make sense to build a smaller box?

only if you need to put stuff in your trunk, i have about 2 inches above my speakers for them to breathe and allow excursion.. thats about it.. and my setup sounds pretty good to me, hits hard and loud, like i want.

i think thats what you were asking.

any sub will play ina smaller box then they recomend, but no one said it will sound good
reason beeing, you can loose out on a large percentage of your low end

I wish that You'd rephrase for intent.

If I understand Your statement: Your looking into acoustic loading?

It's not terribly important for 80% of sound systems. It's also entirely dependant on the driver & enclosure.

Well, I'm not sure how to rephrase it. I was concerned that the lack of airspace and airflow into the cabin would keep all the SPL in the trunk, but my plans have changed.
