That is the problem.  And there is no mouse face.

   The "fireworks" are not destructive and usually deliver a text message

A not very experienced user has two windows, one showing Info.  He
clicks mouse-2 on the Info buffer mode line to make it cover the
entire frame.  But that is not what happens.  Instead, the Info buffer
widens.  The poor user may not even know what narrowing is, or how
Info is internally implemented.  He may have no idea what happened or
what to do next.

Even with Xterm Mouse mode enabled, mouse-button+modifier combinations
get handled by the terminal emulator, not by Emacs.
