Dear petko d. petkov,
I don't know if it was your intention, but you're giving a bad name to xssed.com, which goal is to organize the public XSS vulnerabilities, make statistics, and first of all to spread education about XSS vulnerabilities. While the scenario you describe is somehow possible, it relies on the availability of our web site, and we'd be able to stop it quickly. Anybody would be able to build such list of XSS list without the need of our site, and with their own discoveries. I wanted to clarify it. Anyway i think that everybody here on the list knows the dangers and advantages of full disclosure..

Kevin
