Love the idea, but why use a custom syntax instead of markdown?

Markdown is supported, from the Features list...

three markup syntaxes supported: Vimwiki's own syntax, Markdown, MediaWiki

For one think, Markdown does not support checklists. I'm not sure how checklists are handled in VimWiki when using Markdown as the backend.
