Where's the capability to lookup a subject by matching against the
index entries (what every Info reader does when I press 'i')?  Without
this, any documentation viewer is much less efficient, except for the
first reading.

I also sorely miss keyboard navigation, like having the SPC key go to
the next node at the end of the current node.

Btw, some cross-references don't work, for example "The Minibuffer" in
the "The Echo Area" node.

How is this different from using the HTML produced by makeinfo?
