the context of this was a discussion how to generate a ToC using NROFF.
My comment was regarding the claim that NRoffEdit somehow achieves this;
it does not. It just does exactly what xml2rfc does: it paginates itself
and adjusts the ToC accordingly. Once you feed the nroff output, be it
from NRoffEdit or xml2rfc, into a standard nroff process, it'll get
incorrect as soon as page breaks change.
The page break will NOT change. NRoffEdit produces the exact same
page breaks as "the standard nroff process".
