This is already implemented, see the mouseto action. The X and Y are percentages, so for the center of the screen you'd use:

echo mouseto 0.5 0.5 | dotool

iirc ydotool just whips a relative pointer device into a corner before trying to position it (which gets it extra wrong if there's mouse acceleration) and hence has pretty arbitrary units.
