Perhaps a two-word correction to ?text ?

I think it is behaving as I'd expect: the y adjustment of 0 says that the bottom of the text aligns with the specified point, while the y adjustment of 1 says that the top of the text aligns there. This is consistent with the description for x: 0 says the left end aligns, 1 says the right end aligns.

The text may be a little terse, but it is consistent.
