when visiting .info files in Emacs via find-file Emacs opens the file in the
default major-mode instead of Emacs' info-mode. I suggest therefore to add the
following default-association:

 (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.info\\'" . info))
The value of major-mode in an Info buffer is Info-mode:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.info\\'" . Info-mode))

This doesn't work too.  It seems `Info-on-current-buffer' was created
exactly for the purpose to be associated with .info in auto-mode-alist.
It is not used anywhere else.

That doesn't work either: even if the file is editable, the buffer is read-only.

It should be something like:

(lambda ()
  (let ((Info-enable-edit buffer-read-only))
    (when Info-enable-edit
