@pxref often 'expands', if that is the right word, to something that
is considerably shorter that the source, in this case in info it

    (*note (elisp)Yanking Media::).

so putting @w on the arguments wouldnʼt help. In html it produces

    (see Yanking Media in The Emacs Lisp Reference Manual)

which, whilst longer, fits within the width of any reasonable browser
window. I guess we could use @w for "The Emacs Lisp Reference Manual"
there (but I never read emacs docs in html, so Iʼm the wrong person to
offer an opinion).
