The spec seems to be missing details on how this is supposed to work.

The way I read it text-align just affects the text in the list item itself  
(or rather, the alignment of inline boxes in the lineboxes contained by  
the list-item's principal box, or something like that). Not the /position/  
of the list item or the marker.
