Many versions of troff produce Postscript, which makes most of us happy, and for the rest, nroff will still produce the desired plain text.  Since the troff source is in most cases available, I'd stick with the greatest common denominator.

The big problem is the order forms (such as that published on pages 35-37 of the current issue).  I would definitely favor an electronically available issue, though, perhaps posted to a suitable subgroup, such as comp.org.usenix.newsletter
