It's interesting to consider how one might do this in an "Emacsy"
manner convenient for elisp programmers.

For instance a "super tab" text property saying "align to colum N (or
leave M units of whitespace if already there)"; maybe some degree of
indirection would be useful so one need not rewrite the buffer text to
change N dynamically.

Given that emacs already has text properties to allow munging spaces,
perhaps this would even not be terribly difficult to implement (you'd
just leave the decision as to how wide the resulting space was until a
point where the display engine had an idea of concrete display
