Marked does not function well as a wiki, but it's entirely possible to extend it to recognize the link syntax using custom preprocessors. It's unlikely I'll make the additional syntax part of the core installation, though.
nvUltra, my upcoming notes app, also recognizes Wiki links, as does nvALT before it. But they make sense in apps like that which can handle them internally. Marked would never know for sure what to do with them. Add an MD extension? Assume a rendered HTML file? Is the target relative to the document? What if we're in a streaming preview without base url? Too many inconsistencies between implementations to make any assumptions.
As I mentioned, though, a few lines in a custom preprocessor script could not only make them look better, but render them to link in just the way you expect them to. If I find time, I'll write one up, but if you have any scripting knowledge, it's just a simple regex replacement.
