EDIT: Buff list complete.
EDIT: Original post
Hi, My goal is to put together a concise buff list.

The categories I think should be:
1. Area of effect: self, units, battlefield.
2. Spell effect and limitations.
3. Research school and level.
4. Casting requirement.

If such a list already exists I'll appreciate if someone could point me to it, otherwise I hope the kind hearted gurus on these threads will volunteer information so that I could add it to the list in the first post.

From the top of my mind I could come up with some very basic start.

Check out DrPraetorious's spell database, online courtesy of Snoddasmannen:

http://www2.onyx.nu/pb/dom3/spells.html

Enter 9 for all levels of magic, then scan down the right column looking for "Buffs".

Hope that helps.
