    Seems anchors are useful only for making references to them, not for
    selecting them from completion list.

I don't see any a priori reason to suppose it's not useful to "g"o to an
anchor.  One document's anchor is another document's node.  (I mean, the
division into nodes vs. subnode positioning via anchors is a judgement
call, not an absolute fact.)

That said, I don't feel terribly strongly about whether "g" includes
anchor names in possible completions or not.  Standalone Info does.

      ... the reference names feature.  I still think this feature is
      very useful especially for moving from indexes directly to lines
      where index items are described.  This feature can be replaced
      later gradually by anchors as suggested by Luc.

I don't understand.  I thought that this required index entries to be
used as the second or third arg of xrefs, and I am not aware of any
manuals which make xrefs like that.  Nor is that how @xref is intended
to be used.  Am I confused?  Are you somehow implicitly inserting
references to index definitions?

The other changes seem good, as far as I understand them.  (Discounting
my aversion to Info-hide-note-references.)
