misleading error message

The attached texinfo input file looks superficially correct, but is rejected by 

$ makeinfo --version
makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.13
$ makeinfo foo.texi 
/tmp//foo.texi:34: `Unicode' has no Up field (perhaps incorrect sectioning?).
makeinfo: Removing output file `/tmp/libunistring.info' due to errors; use 
--force to preserve.

That error message led me to verify the sectioning commands; they are all fine.
The error was actually due to an unrecognized line inside @menu ... @end menu.

May I suggest to change the error message from
  "%s has no Up field (perhaps incorrect sectioning?)."
  "%s has no Up field (perhaps incorrect sectioning, or missing menu line in 
parent node?)."
