It doesn't have to be one list.  Many of the prime phish targets are
in regulated industries, so there already lists of who the real
entities are.  A list of domains of actual banks, published by a
regulator like the FDIC or a trade association like the ABA, would be
a good start.

I suggested about a decade ago to a guy from the FDIC that they should
set up a CA and sign the certs of the banks they insure.  Good idea,
he said, and nothing came of it.
