In http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.devel/79561 you suggested to bind
it to `I'.  I like your initial suggestion for the same reasons you described:

  1. It would be useful to have an Info command, say bound to `I', that would
  do for index lookup what `L' (Info-history) does for chronological
  navigation. You would type a regexp, and it would show you a buffer similar
  to the `Recently Visited Nodes' buffer of `L'.
