I got a few hints from Alan Barret:
the message could slightly be improved. Basically it is trying to tell
you that you have a .It item inside a .Bd/.Ed block instead of a list,
which is incorrect nesting.
It would make some kind of sense if the nesting looked like:
but using a "display" for this seems dubious (this is no quote, or
code sniplet, just plain english), so the easiest fix is to delete the
.Bd and .Ed lines completely.
