Universal syntax for Markdown

because of the great editor "Writer" from Information Architects I've
learned about Markdown and I love it. But it's very confusing, that
there are so many standards with different features: classical
Markdown, Markdown Extra, MultiMarkdown. I think for most users and
the spreading of Markdown it would be nice, to have only one syntax.

And this universal syntax should have the additions of MultiMarkdown:
footnotes, tables, definition lists, citation, metadata (author,
title, date), and so on... Because I think many people would like to
have these additional functions in Markdown. And who doesn't need
these additional functions, simply doesn't use them.

I think, one universal Markdown-syntax with the additional
possibilities of MultiMarkdown would be less confusing for consumers
and would help to spread Markdown in more apps and to more users.
Because it's really great!

Best regards,
