makeinfo creates a file `stdin.info' if there is no argument and input
comes from STDIN, and the output isn't piped through.  If there is an
argument I suspect it's best to ignore input on STDIN.

Very good.

This should be mentioned explicitly.  How shall I now that I can
abbreviate `--' to `-'?  For me, `abbreviate' only means that I can
omit something on the right side of an option name, not on the left.
