    I usually prefer "chunked" output so
    larger manuals don't kill my browser.

1) Texinfo manuals are usually pretty small, as such things go.
2) If there is a sensible way to split XML output, I'd be most happy to
incorporate a patch for that :).  I don't know how to do it.

    I really don't think there's a place for all theses special entities
    that duplicate characters easily available in ISO-8859-1 and

As I recall, it simplifies the makeinfo code to output the entity names.
It also seems better to me than outputting actual 8-bit characters.

    What i really need to find out is whether the XML output looses
    information that's present in the original texinfo file.

The design is that it does not lose information.  However, in practice,
some bits are lost.  Anything in the @titlepage environment, for one;
that is hard to fix and won't be any time soon, unless someone sends me
a patch :).  Other than that, bug reports are welcome.
