Actually, I don't think FSF is sticky about this issue. Richard acknowledges
the existence of free browsers for HTML. He does, however, want you to write
your documentation in TeXinfo format, because it prints better that way, and
converts from the document source into HTML reasonably well.

I don't think we should de-support "info" now, but I think the time will come.
