I think this the beginning of something bigger that will take our content and post it in the search results.
Do you mean like how Google tries to provide a condensed answer in the SERPS for "how to cure acne" and other "how to treat" queries? Although Google does link to these sites for such queries, some of the condensed answers are complete enough that users would never have to visit the actual site that posted the information to find a satisfactory answer. Therefore, Google is already doing what you speak of.
This raises a host of ethical and legal questions. Should someone follow the health treatment information that Google posted in the search results and have a bad outcome, does that make them liable since they provided the answer on their website? And just what kind of rights do we have to the content we create? Can a search engine pick apart our content with such precision, while ignoring industry standard meta tags, that they can display what they want to their users without violating our rights?
