Well it's looking better: now separated with a horizontal rule and flagged "(automatically generated)". Nice one Matt: thanks for listening. Cool.

Ah, that's a RADICAL improvement. Thanks for letting us know.
I still wish they'd exclude VIP blogs. You don't see them all over the Global tag/category pages now, do you?
Right on - the VIP blogs we all know about anyway. We've either already subscribed or ignore them for a reason. (ICHC, for example.)
I'll say one thing for this new feature, though. It might just be the novelty factor, but my stats jumped like crazy yesterday - a Sunday - but only on those posts that have the possibly related posts links.
Congrats. I saw only three hits that could possibly have come from this (all listed as "Wordpress Dashboard").
With all due respect, even if the formatting now shows "(automatically generated)", why not carry it a logical step further and say "(automatically generated by wp.com)"?
I think what bothers me most about this new feature is the intrusive nature of including related links that *appear in your blog posts*. The better approach for related links is the category/tag browser. That at least takes readers off your blog to a listing of other wp.com blog posts using the same category/tag and nullifies any suggestion of endorsement on the part of the blog author.
Forgot to mention in my above post that I greatly appreciate that we have been given the ability to disable this feature on our blogs.
