Hmm. If we go 2- or 3- axes, then instead of rating I assume we would
use that term instead.

Utility: 3
Macarenality: 5 (this recipe really knows how to dance!)

Perhaps the page for ratings? Cookbook.Recipe-Ratings. Then, the
recipe author can include the last five ratings (say), and then link
to all ratings. The -Talk page is more for discussion of recipe
