It would be quite a lot of work to implement this in the stand-alone
Info program as the later history isn't saved when going back in the
history.  Possible to do of course, but I for one have never missed
this feature in info.

I checked and 'r' goes forwards in the Emacs Info mode too.

I agree that 'r' to select a cross-reference would likely be a rarely
used command in Info.

It's 'H' not 'h' in info that loads the help.  'h' loads the tutorial.
I don't see why 'H' couldn't load the help in info.js too.
