Yes, I would say it's definitely a bug.  This is a bit of misuse of
self-alignment-X, but the same happens with this line:

 \once \override DynamicText.self-alignment-X = #5

So, possibly it's a problem with the Dynamics context?

Another example bites the dust.
Yeah, sorry.  It's not hard to come up with vivid demonstrations; the
difficult part of course is to find the real-world example where just that
command is what you need!

(It can be used to create the same effects as \shape, but then...there's
\shape for that.)

Offsetting arpeggio.positions is nice, I think.  (Though not precise; there
is quantization which unavoidably kicks in, I think.  It's still nice for
arpeggios across tiny intervals, where you don't want to figure out staff
positions yourself.)
