This assumes the recipe writer knows the difference.
Well, yes, but the recipe doesn't always say so. I normally always sift flour when I'm weighing it but never sure which way round with cups. I generally end up converting the number of cusp of flour to ounces and weighing it.

It's difficult to deal with imprecise recipes. Your solution is probably the best way.

I never sift unless it's called for in the recipe.
