Volumes Vs. Weight

Using volume is a recipe for disaster - especially on a site is as international as this one - one persons cup of X can vary wildly (humidity, ingredient quality, are they US/UK/Aussie cups, packed or leveled off?). Anyone who is serious about cooking, especially baking, shouldn't want use cups anyway - way too inaccurate.
Is there a way that the recipes here could at least have the weights as well as the volumes measurement - bearing in mind that the conversion is never just straight forward?
