Referencing an attribute of "this column" in a format

I want to write a custom format that is smart enough to look up an attribute of whatever column the format happens to be used in. (I would also like to be able to do the same in a column formula, btw.)

 

Is there a way to reference "this column" ("the current column") in a JSL format or column formula? That is to say, an expression that will return (a reference to, the name of) the very column in which the format or the formula is being run? The strategy might be different in the two cases…
