makeinfo accepts the following defindex (only the first is licit according
to the manual):

@defindex aa
@defindex 11
@defindex aaa
@defindex a
@defindex &

without warning... and even produce the right output when using the 
corresponding @*index and @printindex.

texi2dvi also accept those commands, and only choke on

The texi2dvi result, however is wrong for all but the correct index. 
texi2dvi also creates the fun file names corresponding with the fun index

As usuall, I found that while testing what was the correct behavior to
implement in texi2html. So among the index names above which one is right
and which one is wrong? I believe makeinfo should warn for the wrong

I attach the whole test file.
