I’m going to repeat why I think that Markdown-ish things aren’t enough: There
is interest especially in the kind of groups which would use Slack or
Mattermost to have rich-text messages. Those are usually not generated by
users, but by automated systems (for example monitoring). I’m not saying that
we should slap a rich-text editor in front of a user (even though I certainly
won’t stop anybody). I’m also saying that '393 is a really good input format,
which is why I want to make '394 compatible to that (as mentioned in the
threads back then).
