Yes, the nomenclature on TIFILES and ARK got heavily mixed up in the earlier times, maybe because TIFILES packaging only appeared for transfer, and the format delivered by the Archiver was similar to this format.

The files under the 9640News directory with the CATxx subfolders originated from GEnie back in the day. The original CD I distributed with that CD had a FILES.BBS file for each folder with a file description of the contents of that folder from the original 9640News BBS I had up during the 90's.
At one point in time, Don and I had a mysql database that had the source path, filename, and any file description that may have existed so one could do a search and download from a web interface a bit easier than what is there now. I think that has been long discarded in the past 10-15 years. I know there were quite a few things I had also uploaded to Whtech for preservation purposes that look like it disappeared.
Anyways, when I go to look for something "old", I use the sitelist.txt file and do a search for a word or partial word/string to try and find what I am seeking.
It is, what it is.
Now, I am pretty sure, the CYC with Cadd99 has a complete file breakdown of at least the contents of the 9640News CD I distributed that I gave Mike permission to distribute with Cadd99. If you were looking for a specific file from before 1997, that is probably the only complete resource I know for those files.
