So, there are many things people read in the proposal that I didn't want to put in, but the things I very much do want to include get lost in translation also. I wanted to allow the GHC source itself to be written in markdown.

If the existing source tree is using one form of markup, changes and additions should really be consistent with what's already there instead of introducing a new kind of markup.  This could actually be *more* disruptive.

The point was that quite a bit of the GHC source has markdown-like things in it, using LaTeX-style code-fencing, but LaTeX-incompatible markup (like underlining section with ~~~~~).
