Our opinion as implementors of the spec in Chrome was to enable the 
CSS
Alignment feature, replacing the old syntax implemented by FF. The 
Chrome
community agreed and prioritized web compatibility, so they recommend 
to
follow what FF eventually does on this regard.  We are not sure what 
WebKit
will do, though, but we expect to follow the same approach.

Other than that, the 'legacy' implementation introduced several 
complexities
in the style resolution logic; in the same line than the effort we had
to do to
satisfy the 'auto' value resolution for the self-alignment properties.
Now that
have have got rid of those 'auto' values resolution, it's the perfect 
moment
to take a decision on this legacy keyword issue.
