If a measure contains only a full measure rest, the rest is centre-aligned, but text associated to the rest is left-aligned to that measure. Manual adjustment is needed in the majority of cases.

A common application is a general rest (G.P.):

The default settings yield:

This seems inconsistent to me, and I cannot think of any practical use to the left-aligned text.

Well, there are tons of uses, really probably most text you'd add to a measure should be left aligned regardless of whether there happens to be a centered rest in the measure or not (eg, tempo, rehearsal mark, etc). But a way to center text would certainly be nice, and potentially useful whether the measure happens to contain a measure rest or not.
