   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.

If going that route, don't make it a seperate file.  Instead make it
something similar to the "tag table" which exists in info files
already; and call it "markup table".
