The output seems to be consistent with documentation (see
I suppose that the idea of right-align is that it only moves the
"child markup" relative to its "parent markup" so that right edge of
child is aligned with refpoint of parent.  It does nothing with the
parent (column), so the parent refpoint (and thus the child refpoints
as well) stays near the left margin of the page.
You may want to take a look at my alignment patch
(https://codereview.appspot.com/7768043) - there's a comment trying to
explain these alignment nuances. ;-P

Bottom line: a feature, albeit with an admittedly awkward interface.
