I don't think that's necessarily a problem, but if we did address this, we 
should do it the -moz-center way, IMHO. It's separate from vertical 
centerting, though, which is the use case I think we need to fix. My 
apologies if vertical centering is not the intent of this thread.

I don't mind which way it's solved, so long as we solve it.
