Explicit PD alone is *not* enough, it's non-free: it lacks an explicit
copyright licence, and since the Berne Convention, all works are automatically
under copyright protection. Saying a work is PD isn't possible in all
jurisdictions.

If you absolutely must insist on PD, I really insist on you including a
paragraph similar to the following too:

.\" In countries where the Public Domain status of the work may not be
.\" valid, its primary author hereby grants a copyright licence to the
.\" general public to deal in the work without restriction and permis-
.\" sion to sublicence derivates under the terms of any (OSI approved)
.\" Open Source licence.
