[O] ox-texinfo: use an Org section as Info Top node

Congratulation on converting the Org manual to Org!  (I haven't really
gotten around to adjusting magit.org and my other manuals yet though.)

Anyway, I have an only marginally related feature request:

Currently ox-texinfo uses the text before the first Org section as the
"Top" Info node.  That is fine for manuals like org-manual.org where
that part of the document only consists of a few lines.  In my manuals
there are up to 40 lines before the first heading, which makes it
desirable to make that part of the document collapsible.

As a side-note, the reasons why I put more than just

> #+title: The Org Manual
> #+texinfo: @insertcopying

at the beginning of the file is that (1) I like to set the variables
there, and (2) I put more information into the Info "Top" node (which is
not included in the pdf export) than what I would like to be displayed
on the copyright page when exporting to pdf.  The latter should only
display the copyright information, while I want the former to display

> Borg User Manual
> The Borg assimilate Emacs packages as Git submodules.  Borg is a
> bare-bones package manager for Emacs packages.
> This manual is for Borg version 2.0.0 (v2.0.0-59-g89a9394+1).
>     Copyright (C) 2016-2018 Jonas Bernoulli <address@hidden>
>     ...

It is already possible to set the section whose content is to be used
on the copyright page (and which can be inserted elsewhere using
"#+texinfo: @insertcopying") using the COPYING property.

Could you please implement something similar for the "Top" node, using
a property such as TOP?
