Markdown render hooks for all the things?

:wave: here! I have a general question – sorry in advance if I missed an obvious GitHub/Discourse thread.

I was wondering whether it has been discussed previously to add Markdown hooks for all the things: for footnotes, for code, for paragraphs, for tables, etc. This way, one could more easily generate HTML looking like some existing template (Bootstrap, Distill, etc.) without using shortcodes (so Markdown content would be easier to port to another theme – I know an alternative is replaceRE). That’s my own naive & biased & very limited perspective, so I’m curious to read about the design decisions. :slightly_smiling_face:

In a post on this forum I saw @sephore say β€œI think it’s only a matter of time before more custom templates to render hooks are available.”
