@austinkocher Oh, please settle on anything but GitHub! GitHub at the center of the scheme is harmful. We still have txt2tags, RST, CommonMark, Pandoc, GLFM, groff, SISU, LOUT, AFT, UDO and other plaintext document preparation systems that are not tied to a commercial monopolist.
Some mathematical papers cannot be done expediently with Markdown. Some large and complex equations require LaTeX to guarantee output rendering accuracy. This would require Markdown documents with many LaTeX blocks anyway. So one might as well just use LaTeX for the whole document.
Other these objections I agree with your sentiment. In my realm soft-wrapped plaintext is still King and markdown is Queen.

Bill to address PACER grift:
