Not necessarily.  If you don't need gpresent's PAUSE function, it's
a fairly simple matter to create slide templates with mom, which,
moreover, can contain pdf links.  As for producing handouts from the
same source file, that, too, isn't difficult.  It depdends on how
radically you want them reformatted.

Unicode support for groff is pretty solid, so you don't have
to worry about that.  As for "modern fonts," PostScript Type1,
TrueType, and Open Type fonts can all be made available to
groff with the script
