In practice, you could also go another route -- and let makeinfo
produce two files, a .info and a .markup file.  The .info file will be
identical to what we have today, while the .markup file will contain a
simple list of "tagging info" for the .info file, which reflects what
@-commands were used to produce each part of the .info file.

something like

@code 341 345
@xref 359 371 378 389    (list each section in the *Note .... output)
@* 459
@page 1033


i.e. something which a reader (like emacs' info reader) can use
more or less directly to propertize the .info file.
