Yes, that would be a start.

Then I would have to complain to a whole lot of authors, as identical
indices seem to be common practice! On a quick look, I also found them in
the Elisp and Bashref manuals. I suppose that others do it similarly.
However this is handled, it would be useful to have a function in info-
lookup-symbol that jumps to the next matching index (similar to "," in
"i" = Info-index), because often there are multiple relevant entries for
one symbol, like e.g. "some_item (definition)" and "some_item (syntax)",
that one would typically want to consult successively.

Thanks for the info! For now, I will use the very handy "i break TAB"
