In some typographical traditions, non-full-justified text is sometimes
hyphenated. I believe that hyphenation should be a separate property,  
orthogonal
to text-align. Also, there are some common hyphenation options (like the  
maximum
number of consequtive hyphenated lines allowed) that are also worth CSS
properties.
