That should catch some problems, but it's not enough. Typically I focus on that editing the .texi file first to get the content right. Then, I want to make sure the result is readable so I generate the output and look at it. Problems with looks often include fairly-mundane things like a capitalized word at sentence end which messes up later spacing, things which one can easily see when looking at the info output, but which one can't easily expect a text editor to catch.
