How about making its interface more like shell-command:

(defun texinfo-eval-to-texi (form &optional insert)
  "Evaluate FORM, and display it and the result as a @lisp Texinfo command.
With a prefix argument, insert the Texinfo command in the current buffer.

When called from Lisp, the command is returned as a string."
  (interactive "sForm to evaluate: \nP")
  (if insert
      (insert texinfo-command)
    (with-output-to-temp-buffer "*Texinfo*"
      ;; too bad we can't force the buffer into texinfo-mode
      (princ texinfo-command)))
