Yep, centered is missing. I'll add it to the template then, though I
don't believe we get any agreement on markup for aligning text.
Attachments are a wide-spread feature, but it's a bit too extravagant
as well to go into a general standard. Because it often looks that way,
it could however get mentioned it in the section about InterWiki stuff.

And ok, I shame for having completely forgotten image links... ;)

I've taken most terms from the MB:WikiMarkupStandard page, and
"Character Replacement" there means "<" is replaced by "&lt;" and
"--" by &mdash; and such things.
Your @SYMBOLS@ (even if it sounds more like a macro) would go into the
same category IMO, simply mention it. This also can't be standardized
seriously - the table is just a bit verbose at the wrong places :)
