Google Base for Genealogy?

This post in the Official Google Base blog comes from a Googler that got interested in uploading his family genealogy into Google Base. (Google Base is a web-based database approach from Google that many people use for a variety of purposes… businesses can upload lists of items for sale, bloggers can list articles on their site, people can upload recipes, etc…)

Anyway, his father had accumulated the data and he converted from Gedcom format. It sounds interesting. One of the questions I would have at this point regards 1)how easy it would be for the average person to “massage” their data into a format that would work with Google base and 2) ease of navigation. (Wouldn’t it be interesting to see the Google Base API accessible in such a way that you could affect the presentation of database information – even formatting it in trees/descendancy charts?
