Here are some places I use for maintaining lists: org-mode files,
browser bookmarks, amazon basket, amazon wishlist, amazon recommended
books, watchthatpage, google alerts, delicious, movielens, citeulike.
Each of them is different, has its strengths and weaknesses, and it
would be very difficult to integrate them into a single system.  My
solution at the moment, is just to have a metalist: a list in my
org file containing URLs of all my lists.

You might not find it too difficult to integrate all of these lists
using a bit of coding. Most of the services you mention probably have
APIs, and it's likely there are some libraries for the scripting
language of your choice out there.

I wrote a quick bit of Ruby code, with a little elisp function to call
it, to pull my bookmarks from ma.gnolia into an emacs buffer, for
example. I don't know Ruby too well, but with the help of a library I
found, this was a 15 minute job. Extend this to all your other
services, and it'd be fairly easy to have a "master-list" in Emacs.
