In html, the current result is clearly bad when there is not node 
name.  In that case, I think the url should be on the manual name.
But when there is a Top node, I think that it would be better to keep
is as the url text, and also as the url target, while if there is no
node name, there could not be any target in the url as well.  Would
you prefer the automatic removal of Top node to be in html too instead
of keeping two cases?

For DocBook, it seems to me that it makes sense to remove the Top
node from the citation message, ok?
