Is there anything I can do in the way I file now to effectively "save" the 2011 1098-T from this year for use down the road?

On any return you can use only payments made during that return period. There's some wiggle room in terms of what academic period the payments relate to (for some benefits), but no way to take credit in another year for money paid in 2011.
