I don't think that's true -- the problem with W3 was that it was trying
to display _web pages_ in some sane manner, and the majority of web
pages are simply not very amenable to that.  They make far too many
assumptions about they environment they are displayed in, and do not
degrade gracefully at all if _anything_ changes.

With an info replacement on the other hand, we can control how html is
used, and perhaps more importantly, it's likely that a large subset of
texinfo authors will be _testing_ their documents in the Emacs
