I just signed up and added two Paris data sets, and it was painless.
Adding a dataset to the CKAN instance is barely more effort than editing
a line in a spreadsheet, and it's much less ad-hoc.

I have to agree with Pieter here. No one is going to want to manually
sync a spreadsheet with a proper database down the road. If you want to
build a good list of open transport data sources with metadata about the
file or API type, give the CKAN instance a try.
