[xep-support] negative letter spacing with right justified text

I have a problem trying to using negative letter-spacing with right
justified text. It appears as though the starting position of text is
calculated before any letter-spacing is applied. The net result is that
instead of the text bumped up tight to the right, it appears to be padded
a distance from the right, an amount equal to the space removed between
the characters in the word/phrase.

I am using XEP version 4.12.

<fo:block text-align="right">
        <fo:inline letter-spacing="-1pt">TEXT</fo:inline>

Using the example above, the word "TEXT" will appear 3 points left of the
right margin. I assume that this is a bug in XEP and not designed
