Markdown export back-end use :html conventions to translate entities.
For some reason, HTML prefers &vert; over |, and so does markdown.

There are a few options available:

 1. Prefer | over &vert; in HTML
 2. Overwrite "vert" entity with a new one that would do 1. So
    basically, this is 1 but on your machine only.
 3. Use a new entity that becomes | when used in HTML export.

If this creates a backend derived from 'md (and does not modify ox-md.el),
then fine. But, ...

It seem like there are flavors of Markdown that use verticals for varying purposes. For example, rmarkdown


uses them as `line block' markers and to construct `table.el' style tables.

And I have seen verticals used to set off citations elsewhere.

And I am not even sure what Denis meant by using them to `interpret strings'.
