Because my package requires them.  I managed to get a decent bibliography
good enough for release.  If some humps are smoothed, I can see that texinfo
would have great capability.  For instance, having math in html produced much
interest.  Gavin has also got to some small page sizes as well, which makes
texinfo very attractive.  Stallman has written his book in texinfo.  I also
found it much better than you envisage.
