Especially given that the officially sanctioned filetype name is
markdown, not mkd as used by this script.  By using mkd as the filetype,
you now lose any benefit of the other official scripts since you're not
using the same filetype name.  This is one of the reasons I try to push
people to maintain their scripts within Vim upstream.  In an ideal world,
the vim-scripts package wouldn't exist.

Is there anything this syntax script supports that the official one
doesn't?  If so, it probably makes better sense to try and merge that
functionality into the official script.
