While my manual says that

     As a general rule, you should write a period or comma immediately
   after an address@hidden' command with two or more arguments.

     If there is no such following punctuation, `makeinfo' will generate a
   (grammatically incorrect) period in the Info output; otherwise, the
   cross-reference would fail completely, due to the current syntax of
   Info format.

so it apparently is less rigid in this case, my texinfo does not insert
a period in the output here.
