Paragraph indent-size should not applied to centered paragraphs?

I have a suggestion to make.

When I specify an indent-size in the conversion look and feel, this indent size (text-indent) is applied to all "paragraph" styles even those where text-align is "center". Such paragraphs are normally titles, chapter headings etc (which may not have been detected as chapter headings). To me it makes more sense for centered text to not have any indenting by default--generally you want the text to be perfectly centered on the screen, which the indent spoils because it will move the text slightly to the right.

So I suggest that any style with text-align: center should also have text-indent: 0em (ignoring the indent-size), perhaps with some way of overriding this in the GUI (check box etc). Obviously this is easy enough to fix manually, but it would be nice if Calibre did it for you.

Why would you use <p> tags for headings in the first place?

This is for books that have been format-shifted (from LIT/LRF/MOBI) to epub, where headings etc often do not have the right tag.
