I believe you can see how many people are following you, and even who are those people, but you're right it is impossible to see who liked you (except for those, who are explicitly mentioned in the notifications).
Well, I think I'd like to see who likes what. I see it as a great exploration feature, a way to find new people with some information on what they like. But I can live without it just fine. :)
