Tom, you really should not try to solve _all_ problems :-) This is not
a wheel that it is particularly urgent to reivent, and Texinfo does
the job.  Also, makeinfo supports info, docbook, html, and xml output.
So there is no lock-in, and the tools for processing (and eventual
migration if desired) are already available and in common use today.
