Make Markdown preview optional for commentors?
I'm guessing most commenters (if I ever get any) will just type in text so the markdown preview may seem confusing. Perhaps the preview could be optional or on detection of markdown in text?

Yes, this is on the roadmap — not in the nearest future though. I have in mind to add a rich text / WYSIWYG editor, by integrating with ProseMirror. And then people could edit the "final" text directly, and add bold / italics / etc formatting, without using any "magic syntax", and there'd be no need for a preview. — Like most editors work, e.g. the MS Word editor or Gmail editor etc. And ProseMirror lets one switch between Commonmark and rich text.

Also Accessibility is a BIG issue with WYSWIG aditors - most are hopless - CKEditor is probably the best.

ProseMirror is quite good, is my impression. Actually I'd stay away from CKEditor. You're right that this is an extra dependency — and it'll get lazy loaded only if needed, typically won't be noticeable. I think ProseMirror is ok w.r.t. accessibility — look, here someone built a supposedly accessibility friendly editor, based on ProseMirror: https://github.com/ifiokjr/remirror
