Yes, I would say so... I have to admit that I am a fan of the general "beyond ASCII" idea of which one sees a tiny gimpse of a shadow
in Squeak... but the way it was done in Squeak was never really good enough and people did not use it at all. (Partly because
both Morphic and it's text model as well as the UI never was any good...). E.g. the first thing you want in comments is embedding 
Figures (e.g. of Datastructures)... or even life working examples.

Is there anything that Squeak Rich Text (of the kind that is serializable as a method style) can do that Markdown can not?
