Thanks for pointing that out! That is indeed an argument for right-alignment, and I found it mentioned in technical documentation elsewhere.
You're also correct, however, that initializing three variables like that is typically bad form anyway. So, one could argue that if you avoid that practice as a rule, left-alignment still wins the day.
Edited the article to include all that. :)
