This leaves us with the question of what constitutes appropriate use
of @inforef.  (The one reference to emacs-xtra from the Emacs manual
which I put in a lot earlier also uses @inforef.)

I originally proposed that @inforef should refer to any manual for
which there is no _published_ rather than printable version available
or planned.  This was rejected.  Instead `(texinfo)inforef' says that
it is only appropriate to refer to text inside @info or to old Info
that did not have a corresponding .texi file and for which printed
text can not be produced.

I would say that it should be considered appropriate when used inside
a manual, such as the Emacs manual, for which a published version is
available and widely used, to refer to a manual without published
version.  Otherwise, the result could indeed be very confusing to a
reader of the published version who is not familiar with Texinfo.
