In Info the node will display, as a title, the section name
which can be different from those two.

At present, in that node, the section name is "Abbrev Concepts",
same as the node name.  But we could use a longer title such as
"Fundamental Concepts of Abbrevs".  That might be an improvement.

That's the reason why the section title can be different from the node

The node name should be a terse stand-alone description of the node's

The section title should also be a stand-alone description of the
node's topic, but can be longer.

The added text on the menu line is meant to supplement the node name
with more information about that node.
