As Bowerbird pointed out in an earlier message, there has been a rise recently in Markdown apps. I would guess the people asking have been among the developers of those apps, and I would guess they have included developers prominent enough to get his attention.
I saw the following exchange on Twitter recently between Gruber and the developer Gus Mueller. I don't have any more context than this:
ccgus: @gruber UTI. Markdown. UTI.
gruber: @ccgus Shit, forgot about that. Will do tomorrow or tonight. [http://twitter.com/gruber/status/98909687612837888]
As for Gruber not posting here, my gut feeling is that he has no interest in contributing to Markdown (or any other project) in any technical way, even to set direction or endorse a successor.
The nearest thing you'll get to a public feedback mechanism is to mention @gruber on Twitter or to use <http://daringfireballwithcomments.net> (Safari only).
