Well, I don't know if agree with this reading.

Text:Markdown just imports Text:MultiMarkdown and disables some
features. While it might behave like the original markdown, it goes a
long way in terms of blurring the boundary between Markdown and
MultiMarkdown. And using it as a reference implementation would mean
sending maintainers of other implementations hunting through
MultiMarkdown code trying to figure out what features are "standard"
and what features are "extra".
