   It is always possible to add warnings specific of converters, but I 
   would like to avoid that as much as possible, as I think that it is
   confusing to have different warning messages for different output

I think if you are explicit about the warning CATEGORY, as in:


it will not be so confusing.  Some ideas for CATEGORY are:

 - texinfo
   the input language
 - info
 - pdf
 - ...
   the output format (converter)

 - format
   compute one of ‘info’, ‘pdf’, ‘...’ from the args

 - style
   migration support, etc

Then the warnings facility could accept these symbols, comma-separated,
w/ ‘all’ to mean "enable all warnings", and "no-" prefixing to toggle.
Personally, i would most likely do:

 makeinfo -o foo.info --warn=all,no-style foo.texi

and invest significant effort to eliminate the reported problems.
