mso is a request, and it is documented in groff(7) like other requests.

I might have time to follow up on the rest later, but I will note
briefly that "Ignored because insecure." does not sound like language I
recognize from any groff release.  It sounds exactly like mandoc(1)
documentation--specifically the mandoc_roff(7) page.  mandoc is a
separate project and groff developers have no responsibility for it.

(We have one contributor, Ingo Schwarze, who is the mandoc project

Please take this fact into account when developing your conclusions.
