What about keeping Trevor's work under a CC-BY-ND license, in case he
agrees with this?  If anybody wants to reuse code for any purpose other
than quoting the music itself, it will lead to a different enough work
so you can consider it can't be a derived work.  About other snippets,
are you sure there is no other Mutopia snippet in the public domain or
under some license other than FDL (say, CC) in the source tree?
On the opposite, note that snippets from LSR are public domain, not FDL.

Junking texinfo.tex from our sources is looking for problems: it's
better to keep it in our sources, so we can freely update it to latest
CVS or keep a not up-to-date revision if we encounter issues with latest
