There are no "automated" list creation tools like reports generated from a general database in Media Wiki here on Diablo Wiki.
The Diablo III lists still require someone to manually identify each item that goes into them. I believe Apoc is working on getting the same style system set up for D2 items.
As for being able to more easily identify which items might qualify for which lists (at least for Diablo III) we will be expanding our categorization to include more variables now that most possibilities have at least been identified. (this will probably take until sometime around Christmas to complete especially with continued updates taking priority of our time). You are more than welcome to come and assist us to speed up the process
