I would not use a special Users: markup to create a special output
format. I would leave it as it is to fit in with the other PTVs in
the recipe info summary section.

For counting I would suggest to use a markup expression, a sit would
proof more versatile. Something like this perhaps (basically using
your code), or we could get more fancy:

$MarkupExpr['csvcount'] = 'MxCSVCount($args[0])';
function MxCSVCount ($arg) {
        return strlen($arg) ? 1+substr_count($arg,',') : 0;

which can be used like {(csvcount "{$:Users}")}
or on any string, or nested with other markup expressions,
or in pagelists.
