I have posted the patch for groff to the debian-i18n list, and
the BTS #66928 & #71744.  I don't know why the maintainer of
groff use it. Maybe he is busy now.  You can send a request/reminder
to the maintainer of groff, I think.

I have tried to do it, but there has not been enough time yet.
The problem I have is the fake error message from groff when using
linuxdoc with trans and tdate for sgml source without those elements
(i.e. an original version, not translated one).

I don't get this.  Do you mean using trans and tdate in DocBook DTD SGML ?
Maybe I will not agree with it.  Excuse me if you mean another thing.

I wish to have it also, but I'm not ready to hack the DSSSL sheet yet.
