My laptop is on metered Internet nowadays and already low on disk space, so installing pandoc is not realistic. Maybe it wasn't realistic to other hackers with limited resources in the past. There's also dozens of subtly incompatible Markdown flavors out there, most of which can't really handle manpages. Anyways, roff isn't too bad and at least groff is well-documented. Updating the website now requires olddoc 1.8.0 (which is much smaller than pandoc), but I'm the only one with that burden. On the flipside more users can update and read the manpages locally without extra software, since nearly every developer's *nix system has man(1) command, unlike pandoc.
