I'm aware that it's just a bug fix release, but it is a version of the
standard nonetheless, so I thought it would be useful to be able to
refer to it.

IEEE Std 1003.1-2004 is also just the incorporation of a couple TCs
into 1003.1-2001, yet it is supported by mandoc. I don't really see
the difference between that case and 1003.1-2017.

Sorry about that, I didn't know this had already been discussed (I
wasn't able to find any mailing list archives).
