That would be way easier on the eye, I think... although on the other hand it would be harder to understand for people unfamiliar with the syntax.

edit: Maybe we can counteract that problem by using the "align by default" version and telling people about the "unaligned" glyph in the error message. If it said something like

"<section name> is not aligned to an erase block (4K). If that is intentional (e.g. this section doesn't need to be erased/updated independently), add a '%' behind the section name/offset)."

then anyone who was unfamiliar with how this works and running into problems with it will understand what it does?
