Really good summary Fletcher. I think unless someone steps up to create 
Son of Markdown as a project, we should all live with your third option 
(and I am just an inexpert user, would not be able to contribute any 
code/coding logic, so I'm not volunteering).

We could go classical for the name: the latin would be 'subscribe' which 
is not very helpful. (Very bad literal classical) Greek for Son of 
Markdown would be something like 'Hypographides', retaining the allusion 
to Mark-down without actually using Gruber's name.

The elusive acronym 'HGP' appeal to anyone?;)
