      The fact that quite a bit of text appears apparently
    out of nowhere when yanking, printing or writing to a file can be very
    confusing to people (I still quite often get surprised by it and I can
    only imagine how confusing it can be for less experienced users).

Copying text from an Info file is not a beginner activity.
Printing one is something a beginner might do, from confusion,
but it is not normal beginning use of Info.

It is a mistake to document obscure potentially-confusing usages
so early in the documentation for beginners.

So I believe it should be moved to an intermediate or advanced
