Article: "Cooks Get A New 'Recipe View' From Google"

On NPR, "Cooks Get A New 'Recipe View' From Google"

For webmasters, Google has redefined the classic ingredient list in reverse of what most cooks are used to, i.e.:

Thinly-sliced apples: 6 cups
White sugar: 3/4 cup

To be blunt, I'm not so sure this is a good idea. It simply doesn't seem to be as intuitive as it could be for most cooks. There are so many different recipe sites out there now, to redefine how to post a recipe on the web at this point would seem downright futile.

Your thoughts? Also for the SE crew, will you now rework your recent Recipe data type to fit this new markup yourselves or let it go? Personally, I can't imagine going through my own online recipes and changing them just to satisfy Google.
