Cross application support for Markdown?

Would it be possible to standardize on the code formatting rules used in the editors / comments? BitBucket uses Markdown, and Confluence cloud claims to (see articles below), but it sadly does not. Jira does not follow all rules, and no clear documentation is available.

It's incredibly hard as a user of multiple Atlassian products to constantly mentally context switch and remember which version of syntax highlighting is currently in use... on the same (linked) platform!

here's an example (and the most frustrating as a developer)

on Jira: {{monospaced text}}  {code}<code /><block />{code} 

on confluence: `supposedly monospaced, but doesn't work` and {code (tab)  then bring up an awkward popup.

standard markdown: `monospaced text` ```<code /><block />```




IF not a sweeping standardization change, can it be a user-configurable option, and always have standard markdown as one of those options?
