I don't think so.  Considering that sighted people are probably
interested too to look at the source code of documents used for both
Braille and normal text, I can imagine that the extreme nesting of XML
is probably not optimal.  What many people distracts from groff,
namely to have commands always starting with a period in the first
column, could probably be a benefit in this particular case.
