I don't think we gain anything by taking justification and centering methods away. It just makes life difficult for people like me who use those methods for formatting text. Also, these methods have nearly zero mental overhead -- they are self-explanatory and have no learning curve.

I did a Google code search, and outside of Python test suites and the other implementations, I found exactly two uses of swapcase.
