Output of --list-only?

Am I overlooking something obvious, or is there really no way to specify
an output format for '--list-only' or 'rsync -a [SOURCE]'?
Tried '--out-format=%n' and '--log-file-format=%n' (just in case), but
neither had any effect. Noticing '-i'/'--itemize-changes' lead to what
I'm using for now:
rsync --dry-run --out-format=%n -i -a [SOURCE] /nonexistent/path/
But, it strikes me as odd that there's no way to change what the 'man'
page refers to as 'an output format similar to "ls -l"' when other output
formats are so readily customized.
In case anyone's curious or another method's better, the goal is to use
multiple '--exclude-from=FILE' files, but to do something other than
'rsync' with the list of files that would be generated by 'rsync'.
