The patch doesn't work properly with full-bar rests and prevents
alignment with note columns.

I posted a similar patch elsewhere which allowed a crude switch
between aligning on notes and prefatory material, but this should be
done automatically depending on where the tempo mark is placed.

I only have Gardner Read to hand, and he says the following:

"The initial letter of the term (usually a capital) customarily is
aligned over the meter signature, or—if none is present—over the first
notational element of the measure, such as noteheads, accidentals,
repeat signs, and so on."
