I just bought the centrotec stubby drill bits yesterday. I don't have an immediate use for them, but I know when I do they will be invaluable. For now they reside in my installers case and I will simply admire them for their cuteness!

SIDE NOTE:  What is the rationale behind a $90 USD FT centering  bit?  For that price I hope it not only drill centered holes, but also mortises the hinges and installs them!  I have 3 Vix (#5,7,9) bits that cover all my needs and I think they were $10-15 each.  Just curious.

The self center from Festool is a 5mm. I use mine for the occasional draw slide into a case that does not have holes.

It's also great for drilling near door and drawer edges for stem bumpers.

I have the 2013 Installers set. It didnt come with the countersinks or 5 mm self centering bits and the standard (flat tip) screw driver bits. All that i had buy extra.It did come with the stubby drill bits.

I use the 5mm but for installing drawer slides. I like useing the blum hinges. So it comes in handy.
