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.
