    Why not providing two or more parts:

    Manuals in $HOME/usr/share/info

    Manuals in /usr/share/info

The usual reason, today, why there are manuals in multiple
directories is because of incompatibilities between packages.
In other words, it is an accident.  The distinction is meaningless
and Info should try to pretend it did not happen.

If we can ever clear up these incompatibilities, if normally all the
files go in one directory, then perhaps multiple Info directories will
only occur when the person who installed the packages specifically
wants them.  Then your feature would become useful.
