I second that.  IMHO it's a very bad idea that we have to limit
correct use of English due to restrictions in a program (which are in
this case even non-existent)!  It's sad enough that the quality of
English prose gets deteriorated by the many internet users (including
myself) who are not capable of writing beautiful English.  *Please*
don't do that.

What I can imagine is that node names get automatically derived from
section names.  For example, a script might check that, stripping off
all texinfo commands and other forbidden characters like the comma.
