Ack! Of course. Didn't see it because my actual case is a lot more

Less-liberal list indenting would be bad, so the only solution is to
insert _something_, and an HTML comment is the most innocuous thing.
Okay. I get it.

I wonder if an **optional**, explicit delimiter for code blocks
would be so bad. The four-space indent is fine, but it's not
_great_. It sometimes feels ... fragile.

When composing email I nearly always bracket a code block with some
kind of visual line, top and bottom.

I am preformatted {
don't interpret me;

Everything in here is to be
taken ****literally****.

Block start, block end. No guessing.
