Yes, that's one of the aspects of a good Texinfo usage.

I don't think this manual is a place to document that.  How to choose
good node names is explained in the Texinfo manual, see the node "Node
Names" there.

This manual should (as any other manual, IMO) assume the typical
reader reads it either in Info/HTML, or in PDF, or as a book.  the
Texinfo source is not the medium whose appearance we should judge wrt
these aspects.
