Follow-up Comment #11, bug #60571 (project groff):

Now that I am being forced to document our two dummy characters \& and \(
formally <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?62816>, it appears to me that almost
no one seems to _use_ \).  Within the groff tree only mdoc uses it
consistently, and it seems to do so mostly, perhaps exclusively, as a
superseding form of \&.  (I haven't checked every case, and should.)

I therefore wonder if any serious disruption would be caused by ladling my
proposed semantics for \] onto \), preserving a precious slot in the escape
sequence name space while disrupting (I conjecture) few to no groff users.
