Tim, you are skeptical concerning usage of Org markup outside of Emacs. 
Though some subscribers of this list support such idea with hope for 
collaboration with colleagues and for other reasons. Status quo in 
respect to similar questions increases risk that other tools will adapt 
different workarounds and incompatible dialects will appear.

 From the point of view of popularizing Org it is better to make some 
decision: either zero-width space should become a part of syntax or some 
other printable marker should be chosen to suppress effect of Org markup 
or vice versa to activate some construct.
