I totally agree, this shouldn't be allowed. And when generating info 
makeinfo rightly disagree:

makeinfo_macros_expand_section.texi:17: Expected `
@end html'.
makeinfo_macros_expand_section.texi:17: Unmatched address@hidden'.

But when generating html there is no error, I think that there should be
the same error than for makeinfo producing info. In fact a more precise
error message like "No multiline command allowed in @section" would 
even be better but that would be a must.
