Follow-up Comment #12, bug #63581 (project groff):

Maybe something a bit less nuclear than the suggestion in comment #6,
something like:

.if n .tm mom doesn't support terminals; results are undefined

This lets the user know any number of things could go wrong, but allows
processing to continue because they sometimes go right.  The suggested tweaks
to the documentation are all well and good, but mom's documentation is
expansive, and it's hard to think of a place to put such a caveat that all
affected users will see.  (I bet plenty never look at the man page, using only
the excellent HTML docs.)
