I don't think Rehearsal Marks are as flexible as \markup. There may still be a need to align markup text to barlines rather than just to notes.

Rehearsal marks _are_ just \markup that is aligned to barlines. See "Text marks" (particularly in the 2.7 docs)

That still works for "Fine" and "D.C. al fine" which must be right-aligned with the barline, but is usually on the topmost stave. Bottom line is we have a system that works for them, considering how flexible it needs to be anyway to cover all cases. The only generalization that we could make would be a version of \mark that right-aligns, allows markup of the last bar of a score, and uses a smaller font size by default (with a slightly smaller padding as well) than \mark uses.
