Follow-up Comment #6, bug #57510 (project groff):

establishing a flag there to pass options through to the *roff post-processor,
just like -P.  (Unfortunately, -P is already taken in the man option
namespace, and that namespace is _crowded_.)

aliasing "man" to "man --post-processor-options=-i", for instance. 

 In this case there is no need to change "man-db",
it already has the mechanism for that.

The only change needed, is to change ones knowledge about it.
