Is it certain that the Emacs manuals are always processed using
the texinfo.tex that comes with that same version of Emacs?


In general, texinfo.tex comes with the Texinfo package, and is
installed in some system-wide directory.  That we in Emacs have the
latest unreleased version is fine, but if someone processes the
Emacs manual with the older system-wide version, they will stumble
on this new feature.

However, I don't know if this is a real danger, hence my question.

Ah, someone may use texinfo.tex form Texinfo package instead of - e.g
- newest one, got it.

Well, texinfo.tex is in emacs.texi.tar.gz (manual in TEXI format), so
I think that's like saying: "use this version of texinfo.tex (or maybe
newer)", and if someone uses older... well, his choice, but it may not

Therefore that's not a problem, I guess.
