I wonder how much use the `cc` request actually got, historically, because DWB, Heirloom, and groff all agree that the following is well-formed:

.cc @
@de XX YY
@  tm hello, weird control character!
@  do tm .br=\n[.br]

And that this isn't.

.cc @
@de XX YY
@  tm hello, weird control character!
@  do tm .br=\n[.br]

What gives?
