I totally agree.

Just put something like

<!-- *Info-Node* next=XX prev=XX up=XX index=XX ... -->

into every page and let emacs info reader -- or stand-alone info
reader -- deal with that; should be damn trivial compared to XSLT or
javascript or whatever.

But by all means, add whatever javascript and XML etc to make it
useful in a standard browser as well.
