I understand that it is too late to change certain things, but that is
not an impediment for me to continue to think that using the character
U+200B as a part (at least /de facto/) of the syntax is still shocking
and weird.

On the other hand, what was expected in Org would have been to have the
emphasis marks and at the same time have a universal escape character
for those emphasis marks. In the same way as I can write in markdown:
*foo* AND \*foo\*. In Org we have the emphasis marks but not the escape
character. That was probably the cause of many issues that are being
discussed here. But that means also entering the realm of assumptions.
Still, I wanted to leave an opinion on this question in particular.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
