No. If I were writing Markdown, I'd use Vim or Emacs or Bluefish. That
way I'd have complete control of what little semantic distinctions
Markdown gives me.

In my opinion, using LyX to write HTML that isn't intended to also be
written to PDF is like using a fine woodworking knife to cut 2x4" beams
to length.
