IMHO, to make this discussion useful, it needs to be conducted on a
Texinfo forum first and foremost.  This is mostly because the
following item:

is related to the stand-alone reader, not to Emacs (for which no
equivalent changes are available).

Personally, I think that a move to XML is a good idea, but such a
transition would take a non-trivial period of time, during which we
will need to support installations where some or all of the manuals
are in Info format.
