Actually we do recover Markdown from XHTML. Of course you can have some loss;
but in practice it's working pretty well (you can test on our demo:
https://libervia.org, choose markdown in settings/parameters/composition)
Markdown is not standardized, and there will probably always be different
flavours, I don't think it fit with XMPP, and it should definitely be a client
only feature and not in a XEP in my opinion.
