It's always been a nasty hurdle for me, discouraging me from writing new
stuff. I can never remember the syntax (I deal with Markdown and other
formats all day, and texinfo gets pushed out).  I also hate having to
list section names twice and the index and all the other nonsense.

FWIW, org-mode is all right but Yet Another Format. I think it wouldn't
be an improvement over texinfo for user adoption. Asciidoc, Docutils, or
Markdown seem much better if we want to make contributions easy.
