RTFD is not relatively new but is quite old, in fact about 15 years.

It was supported in NeXTSTEP which is where much of MacOS X came from. Nearly all of NeXT documents that included graphics were in RTFD format. I haven't tried, but I bet you can open those NeXT files on current MacOS X without problems.

And yes, the on NeXT, predecessor of, also had RTF as the default setting with the same capability of creating/opening RTFD.
