Most text items in Blender are left-aligned. This is good for vertical eye scanning, because you can quickly scan through a vertical list of items.
However, number fields are centre-aligned. This means that both the number values and text items become difficult to scan through, and also that it's hard to visually separate the values from the text.
The yellow dotted lines represent the left and right edges of the text and values. Notice how they are not aligned:
Additionally, the centre-alignment is problematic when comparing number values, because the decimal point is not aligned.
Proposed solution: Use left-right alignment for text and values.
In the example below, notice how the text and values are are easier to read.
Also notice how the Diffuse, Glossy and Transmission values are easy to compare even though they have varied integer sizes - '100', '4' and '80' are correctly aligned.

- Makes text easier to scan
- Makes it easier to compare values
- Less visual noise
