comment Has a command access to its own name?
Hum, if you are specifically wanting to tweak something already existing, this sure couldn't help. Maybe you should insist a litle bit more on this constraint in your question. Also, i'm not really sure of what to do in that kind of case ... should I delete my answer ?

comment What will replace the .bib file?
I guess the kind of information that is encoded in the .bib files can be very much considered as semantic information. Therefore, I very much see a future for the use of semantic databases in combination with tools like biblatex, which could add a lot more flexibility to the format (although it already is very flexible) and could make it also way more powerfull by adding the possibility to infer information. So I guess I would say XML semantic formats like RDF for example.

comment Converting a list of words to a table
\hbox and \vbox are boxes whose dimensions are horizontally or vertically fixed (although the horizontal dimension of a \vbox is also fixed via \hsize). \hfil and \vfil are horizontal and vertical glues. You will find detailed information on how to use these in there and an example on how to practically use these in the kind of situation you are in in there

comment Converting a list of words to a table
Maybe you can try to use \hbox, \vbox, \hfil and \vfil (and their fill equivalent) to obtain a better result than your combination of center and align. I think maybe your problem comes from the fact that they use the same kind of glue at some point. Also remember that these commands will always center your table in the column they belong to at best. Therefore, if your layout is asymetrical, you cannot expect it to be easily centerable on the page (but it will always be, related to the text).
