    is not the documentation of the info reader, and immediately
    point to it?

How about avoiding flame bait, Akim :)?

1) The standalone Info reader is not "the" info reader and should not be
called such.  You know better :).  The Emacs Info reader predates
standalone Info by quite a few years.  Both have plenty of users.

2) You seem to think that the majority of people would prefer to read
info-stnd.info instead of info.info.  But I think that is unlikely.
Most people want to learn about how to read Info documents, which is
precisely what info.info is about -- for *both* Info readers.  info-stnd
does not contain the same information, nor should it.  

3) For all practical purposes, info.texi is maintained in Emacs.  If you
want to propose a change, it would be best to talk to them about it.  I
cannot guess what changes they will accept or reject.
