Everything is public, so it is possible to write a script listing all
package versions in testing/sid/experimental.
The gnome page you mentioned even provides the generation script for
that site at the bottom, however I already looked at it, and it is
very gnome-specific, so would need a lot of modification to apply to
KDE packaging.

However, such a page would make no sense: This kind of information
might only be interesting for testing anyway, since usually the
complete KDE SC packages are uploaded at once to unstable/experimental,
hence there is no progress that can be followed (Gnome seems to work
differently here). And the testing migration status of each package can
be seen in the PTS.

You can always have a look at /topic in the  #debian-kde IRC channel :)
