It was decided some time ago that dlang.org would migrate to ddox. There was even a push by Andrei recently to hammer out some more of the ddox bugs to keep these plans on track, and he reported another just today.

Web traffic analysis also recently showed the ddox pages are significantly more popular than the ddoc pages. https://github.com/dlang/dlang.org/pull/1363#issuecomment-241770552

Even Walter this week considered changing the syntax and has said he changed his mind on Markdown! http://forum.dlang.org/post/nrh0bi$1elq$2...@digitalmars.com

And finally, the Phobos doc generation process has used more than just dmd for a very long time anyway... in fact, it even already lists latex as an optional dependency!


So it is simply objective fact that we don't have to be able to build the documentation using dmd, especially not dmd alone.
