A flash equivalent table is a great idea, but I don't think it
belongs on Supported_Mainboards. I would like to see it on a page of
it's own.

If you know what you need it's really quick to check a few datasheets.
If you have to find out what the old chip was first it takes a little
longer, but certainly not hours. Just shoot the list an email until
this table is in place, several on the list are happy to help you
find the right chip for your board.
