Emacs could support the existing HTML-Info convention, i.e. HTML files
already emitted by the current version of makeinfo.  After modernization
of HTML output by Texinfo developers, the Emacs Info reader could also
support a new HTML-Info convention.  But since supporting both formats
would be more work, maybe better to wait for a new convention indeed.
