Agreed. Markdown/yaml/whatever (and in theory all the “text/*” content types) are readable as plain text (so entirely appropriate for a message body). The hint is there to tell clients that might be able to do a better rendition “hey, this text body here is actually markdown” and give them an opportunity to render it nicely if they can.
I’m happy to knock up a Content Type Hint ProtoXEP if anyone thinks it might be useful.
