> Using JSON you'd have to invent ad-hoc markup on top of JSON

That's basically a description of ActivityPub that wraps HTML in JSON!

Will activitypub let me do:

  <body> markdown text </body>
And ship some js to convert to html?

No, each server has their own rules what and how will they present content. Usually they accept limited subset of HTML and filter out everything else.
