IMO it should be dealt with in makeinfo if possible instead of
uglifying the Texinfo source.

This reminds me of this feature request:
https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?35614 The similarity is that
someone wants to output in a particular part of the output file
according to the output file syntax, but the syntax of the input
Texinfo file doesn't afford a way to get there in the output. I doubt
there's a good solution to this.
