Gould says for guitar fingering:

"Place fingering right beside the note head, ideally in front of,
or above, the note.  It may be placed within the stave, if
necessary, as long as it is legible."

For piano fingering, she says:

"The general principle is to place fingering as close as possible
to the relevant notes: directly above or below, in front or even
after them.  Numerals should be clear of the stave unless
absolutely necessary.  It is usual for right-hand fingering to go
above the treble stave, left-hand fingering below the bass stave,
keeping the middle of the system clear for dynamics.  However,
fingering for inner parts is usually best placed at the stem ends
so as to be close to these notes."

She says nothing about aligning fingering vertically, but in the
examples of piano and guitar music the fingering _is_ all aligned 
vertically, even for chords with some notes displaced and chords
with accidentals before some notes.
