    I think Info-goto-node with a completion list without anchors might be
    useful for users that want to see only node names.  For instance,
    currently Info-goto-node called on the Emacs manual adds anchors
    useless for users:

Maybe we should make a convention to distinguish between anchors that
users might find interesting and anchors users would never want to
visit.  For instance, maybe we could put spaces into the anchor names
that users should not see, and exclude them from completion.

    But since now anchors are very infrequent in Info files they don't
    cause a problem yet.  However, with more widespread use of anchors
    completion lists of node names will grow significantly.  So, I think
    this discussion should be postponed until Info files have more anchors
    and thus it will be clear how many real problems anchors cause.

That is ok.
