Yes, there are more problems in texinfo.tex with non-8bit engines – it
seems that the complete UTF-8 logic is severely broken in that case.

For 8bit engines, the glyphs for † and ‡ are taken from other fonts,
but this mechanism fails for both luatex and xetex.

Yep.  It's really surprising that noone has ever reported those
problems, which certainly exist since a few years...
