[Bug 12858] This doesn't actually define "align descendants". It says which descendants are to be aligned, but not what's supposed to happen to them. Is it like floating, or something else?

I *think* that's what I'm looking for, yes.  The current spec doesn't say what
you do to those descendants: whether you float them, or set their margins, or
what.  Brief testing in WebKit suggests you do just set the appropriate
margin(s) to auto, not actually float them.

So I don't know whether your suggested addition is accurate, but it does seem
to say what to do, which is a start.  It also doesn't blatantly contradict the
trivial test case I constructed, so it might be accurate too.  :)
