The FX filename list tells the surface map to include those FX map definitions, as long as we obey the naming conventions -- FX files MUST use widget names that exist in the surface map, we're good to go.
Why do we need filename list at all?! Why not just scan subfolders for the match? Having filename doubles the work. If it's really needed, it should be generated by integrator itself, based on the folder scan results, like Reaper does with vsts.
It can even automatically create generic plugmaps for each plugin in Reaper, which can later be easily modified by user. It would just scan reaper-vstplugins64.ini, reaper-vstrenames64.ini and reaper-vstshells64.ini files for the info about plugins.
