Hi Mike,

    them as it sees fit instead of how I see fit.

As you suggested, if you want to force your link ordering, use --force.

Alternatively, there's an undocumented feature: if you use 
@nwnode situation, policy, policy, Top
instead of @node, there will be no error.  (nw = no warning)

Although I can easily see how you might get the impression that you can
connect the nodes in any kind of graph you want, there are strong
conventions and expectations by Info users.  So makeinfo checks for
those conventions.

    For that matter, what if I wanted to explicity put in
    the links that makeinfo would put in automatically?

You can do that -- at least it works for me.

    makeinfo doesn't give the top node a prev link.

That is not a problem, as far as I know.

    When specifying links explicity, there doesn't seem
    to be a way to omit any.

Don't put anything (whitespace is ignored) between the commas, as in:
@node Top, policy,, (dir)
