Having done some work with historical *roff documents, my conjecture is
that the single source of truth was usually to be found in a Makefile.
Unfortunately, *roff documents have not reliably been distributed along
with the scripts directing control of their compilation and
installation.  If you insist upon that, you start sounding like one of
those street-corner preaching copyleft people... ;-)
