OK, I guess, although that doesn't really seem consistent with
the description of @var and similar macros. [1]

>From what I remember, Texinfo 4 didn't give a warning about
redefining @var. Has anything changed in Texinfo 5 that would
affect how the macro works? (Aside from printing a warning.)
Maybe it's just that the code and documentation were written
by authors with different agendas?
