(This will probably look like a "Please rename my .txt upload to .md for me and treat it as markdown once you have it" option.)

We macOS users do name the files .md (or .mkd) usually, and associate that ending with applications (Marked in my case).
It’s just hard to convince a browser that this must lead to a specific upload media type; in macOS that seems to go through the bowels of an application, and we don’t all have the same applications (or the same browsers, for that matter).

So a simple recognition of the file name ending with [.]mk?d might help; a check box to persuade some chronic cases might be appropriate as a last resort.
