I think you're considering two different issues. One is visual 
appearance separate from the text content. The other is legibility and 
readability. For what you are describing, full justification may have 
some appeal, but left justified will be more readable. As you read, the 
sharp vertical line to the left helps the eye find the beginning of the 
next line, even when it's in mid-page.

I certainly enjoy design questions, since they can lead to some 
interesting discussions which we all can learn from.
