If I created an alternative to markup that was machine- and human-readable, which became wildly popular but suffered from inconsistent implementations, I would simply allow the open source community to extend and improve my work (with my blessing).

@ashfurrow No, but see: Everyone should just use some dude's hacked-up buggy Perl scripts and not make a coherent spec, or any faster implementation, or handle lists and tables sanely, or support features the dude doesn't personally use on his grey-on-grey image-less blog.
