Yes. I think the 1.7.6 patch from Simon did not change the usage output. 
As I broke the line in two we do have room for a little more. If we 
abbreviate MINLEVEL we can still have that shorter indentation:

--incremental[=MODE]      "incremental" mode [using section MODE]
--markov[=[MINLVL-]LEVEL  "Markov" mode (see documentation)
     [:START:END[:MAXLEN]]]
--external=MODE           external mode or word filter


or maybe like this. Not beautiful but perhaps better:

--incremental[=MODE]      "incremental" mode [using section MODE]
--markov[=[MINLEVEL-]LEVEL[:START:END[:MAXLEN]]]
                           "Markov" mode (see documentation)
--external=MODE           external mode or word filter


actually I think it's best just like this:

--incremental[=MODE]      "incremental" mode [using section MODE]
--markov[=options]        "Markov" mode (see documentation)
--external=MODE           external mode or word filter
