Why godot have Label and RicheTextLabel instead of Label with possible bbcode enabling?

Label and RichTextLabel is kinda confusing to me. Label have vertical and horizontal align but RTL not, at the same time RTL have bbcode, label not. Why cant there be one node with both functionalities?

I’d guess that this is to keep functionality with older Godot versions, because if you’re using an old version that doesn’t have RichTextLabel, you can just use Label, but if there’s only one node for both, then an older version just wouldn’t have any UI text support.

Also, you can use the BBCode center tag to align text in a RichTextLabel.
