   You can think of the breadcrumbs line as part of an extended
   header area. (And you might even want to remove the Up link
   from the header now, since it is no longer needed - the
   breadcrumbs subsume Up.)

To me this says that breadcrumbs should be grafted onto Up,
rather than being a separate feature.  From user pov, the NEWS
would not be:

  New Info sub-feature: breadcrumbs [...]

but rather:

  New Info sub-feature: Info "Up" extension.  MB3 on the "Up" link
  now displays a menu which lets you "navigate" (urgh) directly to
  an ancestor node of the current node.  From the keyboard, there
  is a new command Info-skip-up, which queries you (w/ completion)
  for an ancestor node to jump to... [etc.  The idea is that mouse
  or keyboard eventually do the same thing.]

Bias note: personally, i dislike features that use screen space.
If there is another line taken for breadcrumbs, i will find a way
to remove it.
