What about the following patch to info.texi, documenting M-n, C-u m
and C-u g?  I could install in the Emacs CVS version of info.texi, if

  edit the Info file, so typing @kbd{e} there goes to the end of the
  current node.

+   If you are reading Info in Emacs, you can select a new independent
+ Info buffer in another window by typing @kbd{M-n}.  The new buffer is
+ a ``cloned'' version of the old one.  (In Info mode, @kbd{M-n} runs
+ the Emacs command @code{clone-buffer}.)  The new buffer starts out
+ visiting the same node as the old one and initially has the same node
+ history list (@pxref{Help-Int, Intermediate Info commands}), but you
+ will be able to move independently between nodes in the two buffers.
+ @kindex C-u g @r{(Info mode)}
+ @kindex C-u m @r{(Info mode)}
+   In Emacs Info, you can also produce cloned Info buffers by giving a
+ numeric prefix argument to the @kbd{m} and @kbd{g} commands.  @kbd{C-u m}
+ and @kbd{C-u g} go to a new node in exactly the same way that @kbd{m}
+ and @kbd{g} do, but they do so in a new cloned Info buffer which they
+ select in another window.
