Even if it is enabled, you can't actually edit the Info markup, because
it's been deleted from the *info* buffer.

Ideally, `M-x Info-view' would just call `M-x Info-edit' (or vice versa)
with a variable bound to set buffer-read-only.  So Info-edit-mode should
first be fixed to undo the formatting changes made to the *info* buffer.
