It seems you haven't checked at all. It seems to me that e.g. mdoc(7) of n-t-r seems to require quite a bit of work in order to be at all usable. |Heirloom in base is a win over groff because it has better \ |support for roff(7) |better font handling etc. The macros i use for myself don't work with n-t-r, too: once i truly looked (a few months ago) i found that i would have to rewrite all traps and other positioning in order to get that right. Despite that you seem to do what you want to do anyway, n-t-r is possibly a usable troff, if you go its way and deal with it you may be able to gain a bit nicer output _faster_ and without converting your beloved special fonts first, but in no way is n-t-r a _replacement_ for groff.
