I agree.

As it is now, except for AB, it's impossible to find out if the reason that 
a spam with a currently listed domain got through during recent hours was 
due to detection problems or just that it's a very recent listing.

Either having an "Added:" timestamp in the TXT data, or a web page where 
you can look up an ip and get information on when and why it was added, 
like many RBLs have, would be a great addition.

Even a basic recent additions history page like the one AB has at 
http://spamvertised.abusebutler.com/ would help a lot.
