(Answering myself with more possibilities.)

Either that or

 a]);        b]);        c]);

if we're to assume that `It' opens a macro context with macro behaviour
versus just sucking down the whitespace a la free-form text.  I suppose
this would be more consistent if the <TAB>-separated list is introduced
with a macro, such as

 .It Fl a ] ) ;<TAB>b ] ) ;<TAB>c ] ) ;

Right now, these produce the same results less the Fl effects.
