Except markdown means nothing, there is no standard, and no common
implementation.

I love markdown, but just because your markdown converts with your tool
to a format you want, doesn't mean anyone else can get that same output
with any other tool.

I'd think to standardize this as a XEP you'd want to specify a specific
markdown standard, the only one I know of being CommonMark.
