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.
