These all look good to me as well.  But I would also want to have
the left/right/center hinting, at least as an option, since I
know any default would eventually annoy me and make me break out
into HTML.

Since spacing can be significant in Markdown, would a scheme like
this be too ugly or fussy?

In other words push the text up against the pipe for left/right
justification, and spaces on either side for centered.
