Work on the text/markdown media type in the IETF is underway.
I wanted to post this to this discussion list to let you all know of the progress, and to welcome feedback. To reiterate: this standards effort is to register `text/markdown` as the Internet media type for Markdown content. It does not standardize the syntax in any way.
I have already gotten very substantial feedback privately, so thanks in advance for that. The draft is not perfect, but it's a great place to start.
One piece of feedback that I thought was really important to state up front, is that draft-01 lacks a discussion of goals and use cases that we want to satisfy. Therefore, I would like to invite the community to contribute. Some things in the draft (like the whole `processor` thing) may make no sense for your use case, but several others on this list have articulated reasons why they would want such things. I have set up a wiki page so that the community can add this content: <http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/appsawg/trac/wiki/TextMarkdown/GoalsAndUses>.
In addition to responding privately and responding on this list, here are some other resources:
