Not all distributions of TeX include the latest texinfo.tex.  Or, at
least, there was a time when this was the case.  Besides, as you say,
texinfo.tex is part of the texinfo package, which is separate from TeX
distributions, so just assuming TeX would be able to find may not work
for a significant number of users.
