As said, I'm only a very occasional markdown user, mainly on github and
SE (flavors).

In my current usecase (on a OSQA site), e.g. |REP_GAIN_BY_UPVOTED|
entered as markdown displays the value of REP_GAIN_BY_UPVOTED (some
internal site variable) when rendered as HTML.

Anyway, as pointed out in my answer to Nicolas, it may be useful to
other org mode users to be able to obtain "real" pipe symbol in markdown
export. Hence, a new entity that becomes | when used in md export could
be nice...
