I'd prefer not to use up a potential binding for this small

`C-h C-i' may be unbound now, but another use might be found for it
later, one better than simply duplicating what `C-h i' does right now.
If we bind it to something common and important like `info', it'd be
hard to change that later.

So there's one objection :-).
