Well, it's not field tested yet. But yes, the demo files work.

Yeah, as always, the output is only as good as the input. That's partly why I 
use pandoc (twice, actually.) In a first run, I produce a normalized markdown 
file, where such idiosyncrasies are removed. There, I then add additional 
formatting. In the second run I can then produce the XML. We need the XML to 
produce a nice web view using the Lens Viewer. And also, with pandoc it's much 
easier to produce XML than ConTeXt.
