I guess I don't know why cubes would need a "dedicated" center speaker. Usually that's just because it's horizontally aligned instead of vertical. With cubes, there's no need. Am I missing something?

And the wonky crossovers from auto calibration seems like a fault with Audyssey rather than the speakers.

The lack of a 1/4-20 thread on the back does seem baffling.

I guess I'm just used to a center speaker looking like a center speaker.

Possibly, but when I re-installed my Energy speakers today, they all registered with crossovers at 90Hz.
