you mean dvi version, right?  i thought texinfo outputted dvi and
you'd use other tools to get pdf and ps.

but the texinfo documentation specifies how you'd probably want a
"COPYING" node to appear right before the introduction.  i can't think
of a good reason to NOT have the copyright notice displayed in html
and info.  many gnu manuals do this.  but if you do it, then it seems
you have multiple copyright notices in the printed manual.
