  It is simpler to use a filter, like


mandoc -T lint $* | sed -e '/cannot parse date, using it verbatim:/d' \
-e '/empty block: UR$/d' \
-e '/: \.so is fragile, better use ln/,+3 d' \
-e '/: ignoring macro in table: /d' \
-e '/: invalid escape sequence: /d' \
-e '/: lower case character in document title: /d' \
-e '/: unsupported roff request: /d' \
-e '/: missing date, using today/d' \
-e '/: line scope broken: BR breaks SM/d' | \
  sort -t: -k3n,3n
