(not that it really matters)

(Patrice: Arnold isn't on help-texinfo.  In general it's good to
explicitly include the sender when replying, unless you know for s/he is
on the list.)

    Does LaTeX handle this?

Sure, (La)TeX and troff are general-purpose typesetting languages, so it
is perfectly plausible to make centered tables+captions in them, or
anything else.

Texinfo isn't for general typesetting, never has been, never will be.
Both a strength and a weakness, but it is what it is.

    Some tables you did for me
    in raw TeX and they're centered. 

It should be vastly easier to uncenter those tables than to add a
"center this table" command (a misfeature anyway IMHO) to Texinfo.  Let
me know if you want to go that way and want me to look at it ...
