awesome addon, now raiding equals flaming the archonts and bards I do realy enjoy this... hard times for the sculti archont guy and chuckystars uber-bard
try it and tell your friends...
If this shows which debuff in each group is up, you should add a couple. In "Physical Damage", Shaman/Vengeance of the Piercing Cold. Also in "Magic Damage", Inquis/Spiritual Deficiency and Elementalist/Exposure. Just because I have seen all of these used in a raid before, and this would be a quick way to find out who's pissing off the archon
Are you planning to add Bard motifs/warlord calls?

Also, no disrespect at all, you made this addon. But who are you to say what debuff should be or not be used in raids? Spiritual Deficiency among other debuff gives the exact same gain in a raid, and wheter or not it is most optimal way to have the debuff on the target isn't really for an addon to decide. In my opinion the addon should track every debuff that performs the best, and for increased magic damage, spiritual defieciency is one of those.
An easy example would be a cleric applying Spiritual defiency, which the bard (or whoever is set to apply the magic debuff) notices. Now, a good bard will first of all notice it and then take back the control of the debuffing. A better bard will let Spiritual Deficiency be on the target for the full duration and focus on other things. With this addon this will be shown as if there was no debuff applied for the duration of Spiritual Deficiency, which kinda destroys the purpose of this addon.
The only thing I would be interested in when tracking the debuffs of the raid is if all debuffs of the highest level are applied on the target, regardless of who put them up. For that reason i think Spiritual Deficiency, Luminous Gaze and all the other not so common debuffs should be included. After all, it can't hurt. Good work so far though.
So why would you annoy the archon?
Yes, i could implement every possible buff but which icon should i use?
The archon auras already consist of 5 icons and if every icon would then it's much more irritating.
I use ability ids for recognizing the buffs so it works in every language.
Another advantage is that every level of a spell has its own ability id so if someone would apply a lower leveled buff it would display as missing.

Motifs and calls would need to be included together (like Wild Growth/Illuminate/CoJ) because with a warlord tank and bard both doing their job properly, either could be up at any time.
There is absolutely no reason to ever use spiritual deficiency (similarly, elementalist Exposure) in a raid. In a single-target fight or even on 2-3 targets the Archon will have their debuff applied for 5 minutes and there is plenty of time between raid buffs to refresh it within that timer. In an AoE situation the Bard's coda is AoE so is much more efficient.
