You can easily change that if you want.  After that, the Texinfo
implementation in TeX is, from a structural point of view,
indistinguishable from the C implementation (in makeinfo).

I still think that we have gross misunderstanding here of what
constitutes a derived worked.  So far, those who claim that there is a
copyright problem have not shown any example that would undermine their
claim that the DVI output is a derivative work of texinfo.tex.
