Hi Andreas,

    should use a tableindent value of .5cm while all other tables should
    use the default tableindent value? Is that possible somehow?

You'll have to switch it back and forth manually.  Here's one
possibility, untested:

@macro startdescription
\global\tableindent = .8in  % the default
@end tex
@item Desciption
@end macro

@macro enddescription
\global\tableindent = .5cm  % reduced
@end tex
@end enddescription

And start the description with
and end it with

Another way would be to have macros like @startinnertable and
@endinnertable that similarly play with \tableindent and use those for
the tables inside the description.

Hope something in there will help.  FWIW, I'll be gone the rest of the
week (back Saturday).  If still stuck, I'll try to help when I get back.
