It's feature creep, and a lot of the implementations are ugly
and not even close to being plain text. Standard markdown only has
one barkingly hideous feature (![images]), and the extensions are
not made any more readable by adding more of them.
There are plenty of useful esoteric text-processing features
in Microsoft Word, but that word processor is not exactly known
as a paragon of thoughtful feature design.
