There are some enhancements to hyphenation and justification contained
in CSS3 Text [1]. Microsoft have some experimental implementations
available as part of IE10 [2]. Seems like you might be a good
candidate to review the proposals and offer feedback?

Also, there was recent proposal for a CSS Line Grid [3] and a
counter-proposal from Fantasai [4]. Again, seems like you would be
able to provide some feedback.

I can't for certain, but I maybe part of the reason typography has not
progressed is due to the complexity of the requirements, given that
you have to consider non-latin scripts and bi-directional text, all of
which may be mixed up in the same document.
