Flip label Justification instead of anchors

So now that cogo points have a seperate point label rotation (which is awesome) how about a "Flip Justification" for label components. The Flip Anchor doesn't seem to do anything for me since the text component always justifies either to one side or the other. If I want text to justify "away" from a node I have to have two styles of left and right justification. See attached example pic: I would prefer the labels rotated to the left side of a node to have left justified text and those right of a node right justified text.

I did the attched with the "Stacked Text" option for the point labels.

I've tried that, but I lose my underline component.

To get it close, you could underline the elevation text. This won't be perfect, the line won't be exactly in the center and there will be a slight stagger between the line and the leader (on my printer at 1:40 it was the width of the line).

I'd like to bring this wish up again.

 

I wish for 3 states of flip anchors with text.


0: False, anchors 123456789 remain 123456789

1: True, anchors 123456789 become 987654321

2: Justification only, anchors 123456789 become 321654987

 

I thought of vertical flip as well, but I can't imagine what use it would be. Justification flip, however, would be great.
