People have tried, I was perhaps the first with http://www.aprs.net/ 
vm/ in the mid to late 90's, there was aprs.info, and a number of  
others. The essential problem is that those who have the information  
are too busy doing things with it to write it down! The only way to  
make it work is if a single person or group (with nothing better to  
do ;-) goes through everything that is out there including the  
aprssig (which is where the vast majority of APRS knowledge lives)  
and develops a comprehensive compilation. A herculean task, to be  
sure...
