I object to enable -webkit-text-justify if it doesn’t actually have any functionality. This is poor behavior for authors since they can not feature test.

It would be great to wait for CR of the spec and enable -webkit-text-align-last unprefixed. (Assuming that is isn't shipped in Safari yet.)

So in general, I would vote for not enabling the flag at this point.
