An HTML browser can't/shouldn't know that it's looking at a Texinfo manual
and then magically know that to lookup in an index it needs to go to the
"top" node and then look for links with "index" in their name etc...

OTOH, it can/should provide a way to make use of the <link rel="index" ...>
feature defined in the HTML spec.  So makeinfo should make use of that
feature as well.
