This makes sense to me.  

`make html' is not a problem.  However if `make install-html'
and `make uninstall-html' are introduced and must (as we all
expect) install more than just makeinfo-generated files, then
the GNU Coding Standards should also define a destination
directory for these other files.  Something like $htmldir.
