than just alignment.

If you need extra highlighting, we may introduce a dedicated style and

Having some kind of style equivalent to beamer "alert" will be useful.

Mostly because it is unexpected, as I described above.
I'd prefer to stick closer to the semantics and just apply alignment to
center blocks.
