Esri Basemap Descriptions: Viewable Scales

We use Esri's basemaps for many purposes, including data collection in Collector for ArcGIS.

Different basemaps are viewable at different scales. In some cases these scales are not stated.

As an example, here are three similar basemap items:

    - has no scale information, but links to:
    - has no scale information, but links to:
    - with scale information, which may or may not apply to items 1 and 2?

Our Idea is that all basemap items should include the viewable scales in an accessible location, such as the item description; a dedicated scale range attribute in ArcGIS Online / ArcGIS Enterprise seems like a good idea, given the importance of scale.
