Great initiative! I really like that effort as it is always important to know that kind of things. 

What I miss: some sort of dependency - what service is relying on what other services?

Unfortunately I have a problem with the renaming of my pet service Buildd.Net on https://wiki.debian.org/Services. I added my service as BuilddNet and it got renamed to "UnofficialBuilddNet". Although it's true that it's an unofficial service, I feel great discomfort with the prefix "Unofficial". No other service has this prefix and I sense disadvantage (not to say: discrimination) about the stigma of being named the only "Unofficial" service on that page. 
So I propose either the removal of "Unofficial" from the title "UnofficialBuilddNet" to "BuilddNet" or "Buildd.Net" or adding tags "official" and "unofficial" for each service so that everyone can differentiate between unofficial and official services by using a filter or such. But I really object against being the only service named "Unofficial".
