This is an idea I've kicked around for a while; the former set of three are the only externally visible names used by groff _mdoc_(7) that are more than two characters long.

Per Ingo in comment #22 of bug #64018, collisions with existing uses of `Co` are unlikely, and of `Cq` and `Cc` unknown.

The old groff names would, of course, be retained as (mostly) undocumented aliases.
