I don't want to add fuel to the fire here, but I'd just like to mention that
I actually like markdown from a user perspective (I wasn't involved with
notebook development). Things like the link syntax feel more natural than
reST, and the option to use HTML tags is useful. It's also widely used on
popular websites, and it wouldn't surprise me to learn that casual users are
more familiar with it than they are with reST.
