            Make FDL license notices parallel in language, and remove
            invalid attempts to claim Invariant Sections.  Invariant
            Sections have to be Secondary Sections of the document.  "If a
            section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it
            is not allowed to be designated as Invariant." (FDL 1.3, §1)
            Fortunately, all attempts at Invariant Section usage in groff
            were efforts to prevent effacement of the copyright and license
            notices.  Apart from such material already being protected under
            international copyright law, the FDL guards this information,
            which is not a "Secondary Section", from removal.
            "You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either
            commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the
            copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License
            applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that
            you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this
            License." (FDL 1.3, §2)
            "You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document
            under the conditions of section[] 2 [...] above" (FDL 1.3, §4)
            Consequently, all present efforts at applying FDL Invariant
            Sections in groff are invalid, but also redundant and
            Fixes <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?53783>.
