Using real tables in groff_mdoc(7)

I've been replacing various ad-hoc simulations of tables in the groff 
documentation with actual TBL markup.  The reason for this is that 
TBL tables can be parsed and lifted to XML-DocBook (enabling
generation of really high-quality HTML) whereas the various kluges
used to simulate them cannot be.

Who is responsible for groff_mdoc(7)?  Would there be any objection to 
me converting that page to use table markup for its tables?

slander on the poor.
