You can run nroff on a buffer inside of both vi and emacs
and get the output in another buffer.
I've read internet drafts on a variety of handheld devices,
from the old Sharp Wizards to Palm Pilots to a Blackberry,
and I very much appreciate having a lowest-common-denominator
document format. The only drawback has been the fixed line
length - it can be slightly annoying for text but it renders
ascii graphics completely useless on a narrower screen. On
balance I think it's a reasonable tradeoff, though. And
personally, I'm grateful that such a wide variety of tools
can be used to generate conforming drafts - I think that it
helps keep the process just a little more open.
