  I hesitate to tell you what to do, since I'm not the one doing the
work.  But I think it would be worthwhile to at least prototype both
options and see how they stack up.  I also should say that I only have
practical experience with Markdown (except that I've edited Wikis
occasionally and some of them use RST); the alternative looks better
to me, but it's easy to say that when I haven't actually used it. :-)
