Yes indeed! :-)

I agree, there's a danger of "false positives" and suggest looping over
something in the line of

   when (string= (file-name-nondirectory Info-current-file) "emacs").

I assume it would be easier to create a collection of all (important?)
Elisp related documents than the opposite.  Is it possible to ask Emacs
package archives programmatically which texinfo docs are included?
