I do, from time to time.

Uuh, those links doesn't work at all with standalone info 4.8 :-(

Of course not because they don't work.

Hmm.  I personally don't need links to the glossary, but other users
might have a different opinion.


PS: Even if standalone info is not the first choice, it sometimes
    shows up formatting deficiencies because of the strict layout it
    enforces to the original document.  For this reason I would like
    to have ongoing support for the plain info format -- and from time
    to time I even apply corrections to get better output.
