I agree.

Weird, I thought it *was* right justified in the column?  Maybe
you can post an example of what you mean; I see this:

    ZONE   PID TTY         TIME CMD
  global  9056 pts/8       0:00 vim
  global  9072 pts/8       0:00 ps
  global  9055 pts/8       0:00 sh

And to me it looks right justified, since the PID column is 5 digits in

Well, I don't know the answer, I'm not very knowledgable about user names.
My suggestion would be to tackle the zone problem first, since it is
small and uncontroversial (to me, anyway).  As you point out, the output
is not very useful, so I can't imagine anyone would have built anything
which depends upon it.

I'm happy to sponsor a fix, or can develop one when I have the chance.
