'Remove formatting' doesn't clear text alignment

Description

Not certain if this is a bug or just something which needs enhancing. Removing formatting from text within the visual editor fails to remove text alignment. This is going to be problematic for me when I migrate my posts from Blogger (as they have an in-line style of center-align though I want them to be justified in WordPress as set by my CSS). I want to be able to clear all alignment though the only way to achieve this is to manually edit each tag from the HTML which is way too laborious. Changing it within the visual editor does work though it adds another in-line style (which I don't want) and it doesn't erase the original alignment from the HTML. I found that the 'align=center' properties remained, they were just over-ridden. Can text alignment be included when removing all formatting?

The "Remove formatting" command in TinyMCE would remove some inline tags and inline styles from the selected content. It properly removes text alignment when it was applied by the editor, only make sure to select exactly the content that needs the formatting removed (you can click on the HTML tags listed in the Path at the bottom to select wrappers, etc.).
