Magics are kernel-side function, and the kernel does not know about the frontend.
THe only thing the kernel can say is :

"hey, put that in place where the user will type next" no more no less. 
%%laodmarkdown is thus not possible though you can write something that **display** markdown, but does not put it in the input of a cell.
