Fail in the sense that 8+3 filenames can't have more than 3 characters
in the +3 part of the filename.  So they can't be part of the Emacs
tarball if we want to preserve 8+3 compatibility.

I think you missed out on a couple of messages.  What we're discussing
is adding a .info extension to the info files in Emacs (which apparently
means .info-N extensions for multi-part info files).
