We already have vertical centering in absolutely positioned elements.  
Of top or bottom edges, by setting them to 50%. The proposal would  
let you set the center of an element in exactly the same way as you  
currently center any of the edges. Or set it to any other value that  
you can set edges to, using the same units.

So don't "guess" what the imaginary problems are that would allow you  
to argue against it, just because you are compelled to argue against  
everything, David. There is no problem with this proposal, and the  
implementors could implement it in their sleep, tonight, if they so
