Extracting the list of files during the creation or from the .jigdo files
is pretty trivial, so this shouldn't be a problem. A more difficult 
question is where on the web pages to put such lists.

I have a feeling that with the current huge number of image variants,
people who have never visited the Debian CD pages before can get lost
pretty quickly. :-/ It would be nice to have a form where people could
select any subset of the architectures, sizes
(business/netinst/CD/DVD/DL-DVD) and preferred download methods
(HTTP/FTP/rsync/jigdo/bt) and get a table of results...
