I'm not a member of the WG, Dave, but I am curious why you think it isn't 
fully specified.

All leaders in a justified line expand at the same rate until the line is 

In the following:

     Text <leader> Text <leader> Text

... the middle text isn't guaranteed to be centred if text on the edges is 
of different lengths.

What behaviour do you think is underspecified?
