Ah, this makes a lot more sense now. I think that this patch is better suited
towards more specific md backends (like ox-hugo or ox-gfm), so they can
implement title in the way that supports their import the best. Adding this
probably would get in the way of better title exports for the respective org
exporter derivations.

I do agree (from creating a vanilla markdown exporter standpoint), but I dislike
it purely because the github markdown renderer doesn't display inline html that
well (even though that's per standard). It ranges from being displayed as a H1
header to being displayed as normal (non-heading) text, depending on the way
it's done.

In summary, I think I'll try to get this into ox-gfm (and other org md exporters
I can find) instead of ox-md. I think ox-hugo supports titles already though.
Thanks again for taking a look at this!
