In the interests of balance, -1.

I used nroff until about 2003, tried the MS Word approach with
frustrating results in 2004, and switched to xml2rfc in 2005.

Yes, it is sometimes picky, but the results are good and I
rarely have trouble with idnits. It is indescribably better than
trying to do it by hand.
