Sure. 'pre' and 'pre-wrap' mean preservation of all whitespaces 
including tabs, CR and LF. Justification of such a text would then
imply distribution of available space to all existing embedded
whitespaces and that is exactly something <pre> prevents... So
'pre' and 'justify' are a bit antinomic here. We just want to make
sure you understand the issue.

I guess that your reactions mean:

1. we can go ahead

2. if you ever want to justify text in monospace i the future, you can
    switch to a <p style="font-family: monospace; text-align: justify">
