The reason for this prefix distinction is to make completion of info-
commands work better -- because the Info- commands do not get in the
way.  The idea is that the Info- commands will rarely be entered in
M-x because they are bound to keys.

We can change this if it will help users, but how and why would it help them?

What is the scenario in which you type their names?
