Thanks for this very quick response! And thanks for setting me straight on composer stylesheets - I was definitely getting my css together for that purpose which would have been a fruitless pursuit.
I'm surprised to hear that you're more concerned about the typographical hygiene of margins over text body - I think it has been standard typographical practice to hang punctuation for newspapers, magazines, and books for quite a long time now, particularly because it allows the eye to lead down the page more accurately towards the text that it is processing.

Just consider this a permanent vote for this feature to be added to a theme when that becomes possible... :)
