Making a separate manual is reasonable only for a big Emacs package
like Ediff, Eshell, Gnus, or other 30 packages currently having a
separate Info manual.  However, placing smaller Emacs features into
a separate manual is very inconvenient for users, because when they
are trying for find a needed Emacs feature by searching the Emacs
manual or by looking its index they might miss them.  Currently,
there is only one Info manual that don't correspond to a separate
Emacs package: it is Autotype.  It describes some small Emacs features,
and even most of its references lead to the Emacs manual, so it really
looks like a part of the Emacs manual.  I think Autotype should be
moved to the Emacs manual.

BTW, is there a reason for not including references to SES and SMTP
manuals into the `emacs/info/dir' file?
