I think
ought to provide that information.

I fully agree, the landing page of each library ought to provide such a
table (possibly automatically populated from data in the respective
meta/libraries.json file). Initially that could be fully automated, and
missing information could be filled in with default values, so library
maintainers can replace them with whatever they need.

(If we really must, we an of course also generate a global page that
presents all those library-specific data in a single place. But that
page should always be generated from library-specific metadata.)
