Did you try index search (the `i' command)?  There are at least two
index entries that should have helped you find this text in a blink:
"Period in nodename" and "Node names, invalid characters in".  Index
search is The Right Way of finding something in an Info manual quickly
and efficiently.

That said, if you think this information should be referenced from
less obscure places, please submit a bug report to the Texinfo
bug-reporting mailing list.
