I also would be against mandating xml2rfc.
I do agree that certain aspects of xml2rfc are convenient, but when it comes
to edit text, I really prefer .nroff

I particularly like the fact that xml2rfc lets me focus on the content of my
drafts and spend very little time on presentation issues. I don't even want to
think about how much time I've wasted piddling around with formattting nits
when using nroff, and don't get me started on LaTeX.
Oh, and as for installing the software, I'm not a TCL fan, but even so I've
done that on everything from Mac OS 9 to Solaris to OpenVMS. I sure can't say
the same for groff.
I hope to have provided a simple way to get around these issues with nroff
with the tool I wrote, as it makes it easy to do the formatting nits and
does not require groff or any other external tools to be installed.
