Sure, but:

-- who is maintaining this list? How credibly for how long?
-- where can users pick up a machine-readable export of this list? Or are users expected to scrape the html?
-- how to contribute additional items?
-- why is CC BY being used rather than CC0 for a list of public domain facts (who has published what data with what license where?)

Some missing sites are Krichel's 3lib, RePEc, arXiv API, Mendeley, BibSonomy, bibkn.org, ....
And what about the new Xref exposure of its 46M records one by one by API? 
Is this open data?
