Aha.  From

The problem with @ifnottex in Texinfo 3.12 are actually a
bug/misfeature in that version: conditionals such as @ifnottex cannot
span node boundaries.  Here's a ChangeLog entry from the latest
Texinfo distribution:

  Sun Nov 29 17:12:35 1998  Karl Berry  <address@hidden>  [...]
          * makeinfo/insertion.c (discard_insertions): Let any conditional
          cross node boundary.  (So the @top node can be wrapped
          in @ifnottex, for example.)

This was done during the (long) pretest of Texinfo 4.0.

Let me think about whether we can avoid using @ifnottex across these
node boundaries.
