Why only html and latex? I think that it will be more consistent to
follow what we do in `org-display-inline-image--width' - any #+attr_*
attribute. And apart from html/latex, we have
beamer/hugo/koma-letter/what not is implemented or will be implemented
deriving from html/latex backend or with support of :center attribute.

I meant :align <anything> being not supported in #+attr_org. Not just nil.

Maybe "standalone images"?
Also, please avoid i.e - this is a general Emacs documentation guideline
to avoid specialized language like i.e., e.g., and iff.

Why not simply setting the default to 'left and not having nil at all?

"standalone" links is redundant here - you already mentioned that

I think that we do not need to specify the supported values here - they
are the same as for `org-image-align' just above.

I'd explain that inline image adjustment is also taken from :center
attribute supported by some export backends (like HTML, LaTeX, and
Beamer), when #+attr_org is not set.

:align nil is perfectly valid for HTML.
I thought to warn only about using anything but :align left/right/center
in #+attr_org. And about :center <anything> in #+attr_org.
