Hi Andreas,

    additional output like Section XX, Page YY, 

You could use @anchor{myanchor1234} as the first thing in mynode1234
Then use @ref{myanchor1234,,this link}.  I believe.
However, you'll still get the "page YY", so I guess you'll still be

You could use @uref this way, perhaps.  I'm not sure.  And there would
be a problem with PDF and HTML perhaps having link target names, so you
might have to end up using a conditional.

So, I see no real way to do what you want.  Sorry.

    but for PDF or HTML output it could be quite useful. 

Given that node references have existed in Texinfo since the beginning,
for ~25 years, and no one has felt the need to excise that additional
link information before, I am skeptical.  Even granted that PDF and HTML
weren't invented for the first 5-10 years of that :).
