Kohei, can you provide a bit more background on the benefits of this as
part of the description or the business case or, perhaps better,
release note, field please?

+ I've added some background for this feature as requested.

+ Release Notes: Advantage of this feature

+ Challenge:
+ Draw is gaining popularity in the Japanese market as a handy tool to
+ create diagrams, brochures etc quickly. Yet the text box objects in
+ Draw does not yet support distributed text alignment which is essential
+ when authoring content in the Japanese language.

+ Solution:
+ The internal text layout engine used in Draw's text objects (edit
+ engine) already supports distributed text alignment, so adding this
+ feature to Draw will be just a matter of tweaking the UI and adjusting
+ the ODF import and export filters.
