Please don't: you cannot do that in a way that would avoid problems
with versions of Texinfo that do support @LaTeX.

Why do we need to use @LaTeX{} in calc.texi?  What's so important

In general, we don't want to force users to install too recent
versions of Texinfo, so the very recent introductions should be
avoided if possible.
