Well, since we're talking about Markdown documents, presumably
the editor has no concept of anything formatting-related.
For me, Marked is a tool for creating finished output documents.
I'm not interested in opening the output in yet another program
(like Word) to make more adjustments. For RTFs (and PDFs), I would
want some control over document-level attributes like page size and
margins. With PDFs you can get some of that using OS X's
print-to-PDF functions, but that still only lets you control page

Marked's RTF export functionality is meant to be for export to rich text editors. RTF is a horrible format for sharing, in my personal opinion. For me, if I want to send a document for review it's going to be in PDF, and if I want to share a document for editing by others it's going to be in Word or Pages for change tracking.
I'm only talking about personal preferences here, not what's best for all users, of course. I'm just trying to understand in what context you'd need to export to RTF as a finished document rather than direct to print or PDF.
Go to the menu bar and choose File > Page Setup. Click on Paper Size and change US Letter (or whatever the current page size is) to Manage Custom Sizes. The next time I opened a new rich text document the new margins were still there.
