   That is very true.  This means I cannot copy a file name for Info.
   The name has been shifted from easily sharable to hard-to-share.

if we want to optimize for ease of sharing (not a bad goal, IMHO), my guess is
the easiest way to share a mode-line-as-"link" would be a series of keystrokes
that can be used to find that node.  this:

 (fset 'help-me! [?\C-h ?i ?m ?e ?m ?a ?c ?s ?\C-m])

is more useful than

 File: emacs,  Node: Top,  Next: Distrib,  Prev: (dir),  Up: (dir)

you can tell someone to put this in *scratch* and type `C-j M-x help-me!'.
there are current-state issues to resolve of course; this is just a sketch.

the display of deep-structure info in the buffer is not necessary for this.
