I guess I shouldn't make such statements, without corroboration.  I had
planned to point out the utterly borked MR fallback, but I see you've reworked
it today!  FWIW, I had already implemented my own -- simpler -- fallback, in
my fork of pdfroff.1.man:

.if !d MR \{\
.\" This document uses the MR macro, which was not available prior
.\" to groff-1.23; this minimal local fallback emulation may suffice
.\" to support formatting with earlier versions of groff.
.de MR
.IR \%\\$1 (\\$2)\\$3

Granted, that doesn't address the possibility that MR might be invoked with
fewer than two arguments -- because pdfroff.1.man never calls it with fewer --
but that's a trivial adjustment, for the more general case.  More importantly,
my simple implementation relies on the '!d' conditional, which I suspect may
be groff-specific, (is it?), in which case, I need to address that.  However,
on a related note, if we are concerned about non-groff compatibility, can we
safely use long register names, such as your 'do-fallback'?
