I added the main differences for Google Compute Engine images to the /Cloud/GoogleComputeEngineImage wiki page yesterday, as part of a general page overhaul. I haven't yet mentioned things general to build-debian-cloud (e.g. some generated config files are more minimal than d-i's) or the small list of official Debian packages we preinstall beyond debootstrap.
I agree it's good to document these things for all the clouds, and to provide a "get Debian" download page even though most or all of Debian's public cloud images don't yet count as official by Lucas's definition (we already do this with an unofficial ISO integrating non-free firmware).
