It seems to me (this can be debated) that the preceding __ is opening
a state. How is that different than <ctrl-I>? Serious question, I am
not criticizing your argument but trying to understand it. I have a
user who insists on clicking the panel for closing his OS main menu.
He simply refuses to click the main menu icon. I see this as a similar
issue: the user is simply used to one way of doing something and
refuses to learn another. There is nothing wrong with that, but I want
to understand it.

If there is no way to override the wiki markup then arbitrary text
cannot be entered into the textarea.

I never said that wiki markup must be abandoned. I said that it should
be optional. I've said that repeatedly. I understand that there is a
need for wiki markup, and that some people like it, and that is fine.
