lets not forget about the Sailor Starlights... I think that's what they were called. Boys who went to school with Sailor moon in season 5 but transformed into magical girls. That has to be the first thing that popped into my head when I thought of magical boys. I'd also argue that Cardcaptor Sakura had the silver haired friend who turned into an angel like person. If a guy who transforms into a way cuter version of himself and is dedicated to protecting another and has magical powers isn't a magical boy then I don't know what is.
The Starlights is right! And you're thinking of Yue as far as Sakura goes.
I would think, provided that there's a transformation sequence of some sort, it would count as a "Magical Boy." Think... Tuxedo Kamen, the Starlights, Ronin Warriors, potentially Tenchi from Tenchi Muyo and so forth. The main difference between said males is,
1. Usually won't be naked during said transformation.
2. Would usually be in a more "masculine" uniform, be it armor, or the tuxedo.
