You can give StackEdit a try. It has a nice integration with Google Drive.
Once you import/export a Markdown document from/to Google Drive, you can open it later directly from Google Drive since StackEdit is integrated as a third party editor/viewer application.
You can find StackEdit as a Chrome application as well on the Web Store.

For the moment, you have to build the URL manually.
Where YourIndividualID is the ID of the respective document (zip file). You get it either from the URL or by clicking File → Share and copying it from the sharing URL.
You can create a new doc, spreadsheet, presentation or drawing via the following URLs:
If you're using the paid version of Google Apps, the URLs need to include your domain name:
Deleting it simply moves it to the trash where collaborators may still access the file. If, however, you click the "trash" link and "delete forever" on the item in question, it is no longer accessible by collaborators.
Did you try grabbing the URL via the Network panel in developer tools? I was able to get the URLs for images I needed by:
Opening Developer Tools in Chrome (Cmd+Opt+I)
Selecting the "Network" tab (you may need to refresh the presentation)
Clicking the little "filter" icon (the third icon from the top left)
Clicking "Images" to show only images
Try executing the Google Drive REST APIs method Files:emptyTrash from https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v3/reference/files/emptyTrash
Open the link, click TRY IT! and EXECUTE and Authorise your account.
You will get a 204 response which indicates a success execution.
This worked for me, but the files got deleted very slowly (~2 hours).
The only way I found, which is super stupid and as anti-user-friendly as they go (I guess that's the new Google), is to
download the files (it will take a while, will create a big ZIP file and might crash the Google Drive app)
unzip them, because while Google Drive gives you zip, Google Photos doesn't allow ZIP (output of an app is not accepted in basically ...

If you know the email addresses of the people you have shared files with, all you have to do is enter the following search in Google Drive's search bar:

Google Drive will then show all files shared with that user.
Google Docs does not make a good wiki.
Optimized for printed page, not viewing online (page margins, document margins)
Always in edit mode
No mechanism to dynamically embed content or especially lists of documents in another document
No friendly URLs for documents
Does not link documents nearly as easy as in a wiki (requires interaction with menus/mouse and ...
If you are using the Google Drive application on your PC you can copy and paste the folder in the Google Drive directory, and this would copy it. I do not believe it is possible to do this from the web application.
A Google Docs document encodes everything in 'elements' within the Kix editor that it's all based on (it's closed source as basically this is the big trade secret, with which anyone else could run their own Docs service - which is a shame imo).
I know this answer is a bit late, but there is a new solution to this problem.

Well, it seems Google Documents has been updated since I wrote my first answer. There's now a button that allows you to enter read-only mode:
At least this button is available in some Google Accounts. Probably a feature that is being rolled out gradually.
You can do the same thing with headers as you can with bookmarks without creating a Table of Contents.
Put the cursor on the header itself, then look at the address bar of your browser. It should change to update the fragment (hash - #) at the end like #heading=h.abc32def4 -- this should correspond to the link created in the Table of Contents. Copy that ...
If you download the current version of your document, right-click on the download in the Downloads window of your browser (Firefox) and copy the URL. Then simply append &revision=NNN and paste this new URL into your browser address bar and hit enter. It will download that specific revision.
