Hi, Steffen.  Coming back to an old item of business.

I fixed #59106 but more bugs lurk with various combinations of cR and
the C register.  However, they don't seem to be regressions but rather
to be of rather long tooth, and given a paucity of evidence of other
users finding and complain about them, I think they can wait for the
post-groff-1.23.0 era.

CS and CT are now supported in mdoc, as of
9fa2aed4facae1c94cc339b891aca25c57074551, which I've just pushed.

I've also tightened the synchrony between groff man(7) and mdoc(7)
regarding registers and strings used for rendering parameters.  They
haven't diverged to date, and with this work it's less likely that they
will in the future.
