I don't think it's needed on the HTML/XML side, as AsciiDoctor ships
with reasonable conversions there to HTML entities. It's only for the
direct-to-manpage path that needs them. This is probably a bug in
AsciiDoctor, but I haven't investigated fully.

I don't think so. Even though AsciiDoctor ships with sensible values for
those attributes, AsciiDoc doesn't seem to. Try committing something
like this and then running "./doc-diff HEAD^ HEAD", which shows all
kinds of problems.
