Whether we need a binding for this or not is a different matter.  But
it would seem (given the current implementation) that every user,
even, or I would say especially, a novice user, would need to use the
command at least once (actually twice, because it needs to be disabled
again), because otherwise the confusion when killing and yanking,
printing part of the buffer, using commands like M-x man and the
like, is going to be too big.  The user needs to be aware the text is
there, because sooner or later he is going to be confronted with it.
If the text were erased, instead of being made invisible, that would
be a different matter, but that is not how it is currently
implemented.   I do not know of any plans to implement it that way.

Killing and yanking are not just commands for advanced users and there
are plenty of reasons to kill and yank text from info buffers.
