I realize you are talking about MediaWiki markup
only, but I would like to encourage to also watch
what other wiki engines are doing. Wiki engine
implementers will come together at
WikiSym 2006 (www.wikisym.org/ws2006)
and I expect a standardized wiki markup to be an
important topic (I hope we will have workshop on
it). In any case, if you proceed with this work,
I would like to encourage you to keep the wiki
standards mailing list informed, see
We have plenty of engine implementers there fighting related problems.
