Why not HTML ?  There's already an HTML backend in makeinfo, so no
change is needed there.  Also it has the advantage of providing much
more markup so that text-reflowing is possible.

Maybe the current HTML output is not appropriate for an Info-like
reader, so maybe some touch up will be needed, but I think it's
not a bad direction to go.  At least, it's no worse than the idea
of introducing yet-another-markup.

Of course, a direction I'd even prefer is some way to make it possible to
use the TeXinfo file(s) directly (probably with some form of caching for
things like the indices that would be generated on the fly).
