Why not providing two or more parts:

Manuals in $HOME/usr/share/info
* Emacs: ($HOME/usr/share/info/emacs).  The extensible self-documenting
                                          text editor (21.3.50).
* ... and more private docs

Manuals in /usr/share/info
* Emacs: (emacs).       The extensible self-documenting text editor (21.2).
* ... other docs coming with the system
