I believe that ⌘ Cmd+w IS what you are looking for. It doesnt just work for tabbed applications, such as browsers. I tested it in Finder this morning, the OS X Mail App, as well as Microsoft Word and Excel. All of those support using the ⌘ Cmd+w combination to close the current window.
The command to close the current focused window is Opt+Cmd+W.
