Extending STDLIB’s Markdown

I understand that Markdown.jl has been moved into stdlib: What is the standard Markdown implementation for Julia?

I’d like to extend this Markdown syntax with MyST Markdown functionality. The Julia documentation states that Markdown is extensible, but I’m not sure how to find the best way to extend the built-in Markdown parser with new features: Markdown · The Julia Language

Anyone have any ideas?

A good place to start might be to look at the different “flavors” of Markdown extending the basic Markdown module: perhaps look at Julia first, then Common, GitHub, or IPython.
