Agreed that that package is in some sense outside our control. But it
demonstrates the problem  -- as you can see from the auctex package,
it's possible to include the info pages, but not easily.  Part of this
is perhaps the directory layout of elpa installations -- there seems to
be place for nothing but the elisp files at first glance ie each package
has to maintain a subdirectory structure of its own 

One simple first step might be to say that .el files of package foo
should go into elpa/foo/lisp -- and  then mandate that foo should also
have subdirs texi and info -- for texinfo sources and built info pages
respectively.  This will also open up space for then mandating foo/etc
foo/src etc over time.
