Why?  What if someone wants to create a small Info file and doesn't want to
bother with texinfo or doesn't have the conversion/make tools handy?

Why does it hurt for this to be a defcustom?  Just leave the default value as

What's more, this is an entirely different question from the one raised by this
thread, which is about the `e' binding.

It should be enough that the binding of `e' is changed to `end-of-buffer' and
the option value remains nil by default.
