Google One Box Blindness

An early WebmasterWorld thread is discussing the topic of Google One Box "blindness." Google One Boxes are those enhanced results you see at the top or within the search results of Google. When they first came out, there were hard to miss, but now SEOs and maybe some searchers are subconsciously blocking them out, like they would ads?

Here are some examples of "one boxes":

Weather One Box

Movies One Box

Local One Box

News & Pics One Box

Latest Results One Box

Google Video One Box

Get the point?

Do you think all this injection of special "universal search" results, as well as Google owned content (i.e. YouTube, weather, google groups, blogspot, definitions, etc) is going to eventually suffer from "one box blindness"?
