This is correct.  There has never been a groff glyph name for the
ellipsis character.

Hmm, I'm not sure whether I will do this -- there are many Unicode
characters which could be represented in ASCII: Where shall I stop?

There is an easy solution for your problem.  Put the following into
your document:

  .schar \[u2026] ...

If neither the current font nor its special fonts have \[u2026]
defined, use `...' instead.

Hmm.. I missed that one in the manual... It works fine. You are right about tty-char.tmac. It already has some weird replacements!
