> I don't know how possible this would be (and I suspect maybe more a groff
issue than relating to an individual macro?); but would an error exit code be
possible as opposed to a terminal freeze in cases where it doesn't render? 
This would certainly be desirable from my perspective.  I'm guessing this
would be difficult though or it would already have been done?

AFAIK, there's no way to plant a groff exit code inside a macro.  At most,
groff can be told to abort on testable conditions prior to the execution of
subsequent requests.
