I do not think that using Texinfo as intermediate format is useful.
Texinfo does not support many of the available Org syntax structures

Please remember that Texinfo is by no means a generic export engine - it
is tailored to produce software documentation specifically and may not
be suitable for more generic authored documents.

Note that we already have a much more feature-full export functionality.
RMS even suggested that Org might be used as a replacement for Texinfo:
