That's why I wrote in my very first message in this thread:
⌜Distribute Emacs with the cache preloaded with Info files⌝

And later, in a reply to you:
⌜Emacs releases can come with the appropriate files preloaded (and pinned) in 
the cache⌝

And in yet a later reply to you, after you replied to the previous one:
⌜put the manuals in the cache (preload them there in Emacs releases), and pin 
them there⌝

IOW, users don't have to do anything. The manuals come preloaded. When you 
download Emacs, the manuals come with it, just like they do now. When you 
download a package that has a manual, it can put the manual in the same place 
where Emacs's manuals are: the cache. And pin it there.

And so we don't go in circles anymore, I'll again quote a reply I wrote to you:
⌜you're saying the manuals should be put in a different place P than the 
browser's cache C. ... what's the advantage of having P and C be different?⌝
