CMIIW, but at least the "rb" element [1] seems to be missing for
simple Ruby markup (with parentheses [2]).

Also, what are the reasons for not including complex Ruby markup [3] as well?

Concerning Justin's remarks on public-html (what Ruby is, why someone
would use it, and where to get more information), I think a link to
the Ruby spec [4] would at least help a bit.
