You're right : horizontal alignment is already working
properly, and I was merely echoing Tuviah's idea of
adding vertical alignment and some synonyms for the
current (horizontal) textAlign property.
And you do have a couple of neat proposals for the
vertical text alignment ; though for clarity, I'd
replace "center" with "middle" for this property.
Will you bugzilla these and let us know the number so
we can vote for it ?
