This may indeed be what I find confusing.  It does seem the entries are sorted 
alphabetically, but in groups which have no obvious divisions.  Perhaps some 
kind of heading for each group of sorted headings would be helpful.  A brief 
glance through the `ls info' output suggests to me the groupings are by 
'document', ie:
ada-mode autotype calc ccmode cl dir dired-x ebrowse ediff efaq eintr elisp 
emacs emacs-mime eshell eudc ...

Of course the ording of these documents is not alphabetical.  Perhaps what I 
find confusing is the fact that there is revelent structure which is not 
immediately apearent in the presentation.
