Do you have an example of how this would be used?

Many if not all of the arguments presented above apply to a whole raft of
legacy HTML features, like <font>, <big>, <tt>, <p align>, <center>, <marquee>,
<hr color>, etc. Why is <td align> special?

I could see an argument for align="<string>" (as in, align="." or align="$"),
but I don't really understand what's special about align=right or align=left on
<td>.
