There is probably no great barrier to this question, other than taking

because defining the question is part of the problem. It seems easy
enough, but talk is cheap, and anyone one who comes forward with an
answer will need to define the question thoroughly themselves.

I don't really get into this in my previous response, but I agree.
The fundamental long-term goal IMO is stop optimizing GNU documentation tool
for the least capable plain-text terminals, and (relatedly) replacing
the info format by html as the preferred format for GNU documentation.

What I've been discussing doesn't directly address those goals, but
are indirectly useful:
(1) Improvements to the html generated by makeinfo.
A secondary benefit of doing so is may allow us to
get rid of the --xml output format.  (I'd like to get
to the point where html output contains all the information
currently available only in xml or docbook output formats.)
(2) Implement the info program's user interface when viewing
makeinfo-generated html in a browser.

These don't directly help in getting rid of info format,
but they're useful stepping stones.
