I think I am in agreement, if by "isn't necessary" you mean to say that simply providing more features to Markdown doesn't force end users to use them, or even really know they exist.

I know I am firmly on the side of "this stuff -- footnotes, DLs, fenced code, attributes on headers, automatic TOC -- is useful, and sensibly implemented in the Markdown plain-text spirit, and thus good," myself.
