But that's one manual then, not all the manuals.

Sometimes it's just one Emacs manual, but often enough I'm editing multiple manuals. Plus, even if it's just one manual, Texinfo 5 is still waayyy toooo sloooowww.

Make doc for LilyPond takes over an hour.

That's too bad. It shouldn't take an hour to check out one's changes to the documentation. That's a sure way to discourage contributions to the documentation.

Texinfo is a small project. If one is serious about wanting to invest time ("we need to do better" suggests so), it is likely spent quite effectively there.

Only if we assume that Texinfo is the way to go for the future. If not, our time is spent more effectively elsewhere.
