>From the Microsoft ref:

- Don't place labels to the left when there is a lot of variance in the length
of the labels.

In other words --align right-- as is now being done appropriately more often.

OS X HIG does not address, but shows multiple dialogs with labeling alligned
right, reducing the empty space.

I find the reduced space more appealing than the left alignment, and have no
issue with Adolfo's actions as in comment 2

Each dialog should get reviewed for layout (some widgets benefit from vertical
alignment of indentation) but I don't see the move toward right aligned labels
as problematic.
