Agreeing in general that this needs to be a) allowed b) mentioned c) controllable.

However typographically, optical alignment is unrelated to kerning so putting it in there would be confusing. ( d see the argument, but think it is a weak analogy).

Rather, it is part of text alignment so should be a modifier on the effect of `text-align`, `align-content` and so on which align some part of the glyph (currently the left or right side bearing?) with some left or right geometric item like a content box.
