I think it would be better do add :align-to support to the text terminal.
It is on my to-do list to add that.

It should be possible to say :align-to 'text-left to have text in the
header line (or mode line) exactly aligned to the left edge of the text
area of the window.  That is possible with the expression given above,
but it is the wrong approach for that purpose.  

I will work on it.
