Syntax highlight: Language guessing

I refer to a former discussion (which was already closed). Brett stated:

If no language is specified, Marked (using highlight.js) attempts to guess the language. You can use "nohighlight" as a language to not highlight specific blocks.

I'm using MultiMarkdown. In my opinion a code block without any language definition should not be syntax highlighted. The "nohighlight" certainly works, but clutters up the markdown source.

Brett, please consider an option in the preferences to stop the guessing if no language is defined.

    Sorry, this is not an option using highlight.js at this point. You
    either syntax highlight everything, or disable it and highlight nothing.
