Duration format



I hope this is the right place to ask questions about schema.org
vocabularies, but if it isn’t please let me know.


I have a question about the time format used in some vocabularies, for
example the cookTime itemprop in the recipe vocabulary [1]. It requires a
duration, which must use the ISO8641 format (HH:MM:SS).


Whereas this makes complete sense from a programmatic point of view, it’s
not particularly user friendly from a content point of view. To a human
“00:15:00” doesn’t easily translate into 15 minutes.


Is there a way to get the best of both worlds? I’m new to all this, so it’s
more than likely I’m missing something obvious – suggestions most welcome!
