This is available already!  In ansi-color.el there is a function
ansi-color-apply-on-region -- Kai has told me that he will have a look
how to integrate this function into the man stuff.  It should be
straightforward, but, as usual, we lack the manpower to do that
quickly.  Since a work-around is available, it hasn't too much a
priority I fear.
