The Emacs Info reader does treat indices specially in certain regards.
They should be treated specially for certain purposes, for instance,
because the order of the entries has an entirely different meaning.

   What's wrong with `]' and `[' in the stand-alone Info when you are
   in an index?

For instance, in the current stand-alone Info, `]' visits the first
listed index entry instead of the next index.
