Follow-up Comment #1:

doc-old.tmac is not a macro set that is intended for practical use.
The file is merely documenting Cynthia's historical version 2 of the mdoc
macros as they appeared in 4.3BSD-Reno (1990).
They were already totally obsolete in 4.4BSD and no documents using them
remained in any operating system after 1993.  The grand total of documents
ever using them was extremely small in the first place, probably less than

If there is value in retaining the file at all, then it is in retaining it
with as few changes as possible.
