I really think this is going completely overboard.  We don't need to plaster 
the string 'nmh' on every last piece of text.  'man nmh' (and 'apropos nmh') 
already turn up the nmh(7) manpage, which cross-references all the rest.  Or 
should we paste the string 'Unix' into every system manpage?

And none of these cosmetic changes should be updating the date field.  From the 


        The DATE in the .TH macro should reflect the most recent
        *non-trivial* update to the *content* of the manpage;
        formatting changes don't count.  Spell out the date (no
        abbreviations or shortcuts):
