It would be marginally useful for me.  I'm using blog software that
accepts article titles and bodies in Markdown format.  I used to just
write the Markdown, but these days I do most of my article drafting in
org-mode, and then export to html.  Since Markdown files can contain
arbitrary html, it's fine with the blog that I do that.  But now I have
my article files in HTML rather than Markdown, which makes them very
marginally more work to search, maintain, and so forth.  Of course, I
could just keep the org-mode source somewhere, or write a plugin to let
the blog handle basic org formatting...

That's true; I hadn't realized that Emacs' footnote-mode handled that
style of footnote.  I was assuming numeric footnotes, at which point
there's no further cost to making it Markdown compatible.
