Follow-up Comment #2:

Oh.  I need to (temporarily?) retract my +1.

We already have the concept of a fallback character; it's what the .fchar
request is for.  And an overstriking fallback is the very next thing in
tty.tmac anyway.

Werner is the person who added this special casing for \[bu] back in 2015.

    * tmac/tty.tmac: Fix mapping of \[bu] character for -Tutf8.
    Problem reported by address@hidden

I'll have to go to the mailing list to see if I can track this down.  The
motivation is not spelled out here.
