LCWD says "You are strongly encouraged to complain if you see something 
stupid in this draft."

Dropping  'text-align: <string> value'  falls with a huge thud into the 
category of stupid.

Am I right in thinking that although CSS has been in development for 17 
years, we are still not going
to have a proper way of aligning a column of figures on the decimal 
point? If so, it beggars belief.

I suppose it is because it appears still to be unsupported:

Is it so difficult? Is it regarded, bizarre as the idea seems, as 
unimportant?
