As one of the official maintainers (the other one is Simon Hengel), I agree
that Haddock can barely be called actively maintained and it has been like
that for a long time now. It's sad, but we lack of time, which is the usual
excuse of course. A more resourceful maintainer would be great, so if
someone reading this is motivated and wants to help out, we'd love to be
contacted by you.
I don't think a SoC project for Markdown support would be risky at all
(with a sufficiently good student), however. And it wouldn't require a new
backend, the backend would still be the existing HTML backend in Haddock.
