Likely i got this wrong. I though that endorsements are on
Cookbook.Recipe-Endorsements, and a special treatment in Cookbook.*
would count the endorsements and put the result in a page text
variable at every edit, so it's easily accessible to pagelists.

Well, this way the endorsements wouldn't be protected from
unauthorized access.

Maybe the caching in a page text variable of the
Cookbook.Recipe-Endorsements page is also possible if endorsements are
in the profile pages.
