There is one problem with using indentation to indicate list nesting. Space counting. It's especially annoying when you want to make a nested list and then return to the previous level -- especially if you use indentation large enough to be easily visible. Broken TAB key only adds to the inconvenience.
As for macros, I agree that it's a nice solution to extending wiki markup, but the exact mechanism is usually very engine-dependent. For example, in the [[MoinMoin]] plug-in I re-used the "placeholder" syntax for macros. I'm not sure if it's right, but seems appropriate -- after all the spec doesn't say how you should serialize the object, quoting it raw is also one possible manner of serialization.
The exact method of parsing the raw text is left up to the wiki engine authors. Some wikis use full-blown context-free parsers, other rely almost exclusively on regular expressions, most use some ways of home-brew hybrid solutions. That's ok, as long as the users can use the common markup in all of them (even when there are some occasional artifacts of the parser showing up once in a while).
Maybe there should be a separate page describing the *scope* of this spec?
