This is left over from the definition of letter-spacing with min/max values.
When letter-spacing is not 'normal', ligatures should be disabled.  They are
not disabled based on justification.

I would suggest this wording:

  When 'letter-spacing' is set to an explicit length value,
  optional ligatures enabled by default are explicitly disabled.
