Seems indeed it is standardized: 

...so perhaps (if interested in keep using pandoc) simply a matter of 
choosing the correct flavor of Markdown parsing?

Even if it wasn't standardized, pandoc aims to cover a rich variety of 
Markdown parsing, including several non-standard but popular extensions 
- so I would expect upstream to be interested in fixing also this one if 
needed.  Please do consider filing a bug against pandoc, even if you do 
not want to use pandoc yourself in the future.
