There would be reasons to murder you if you *don't* do that change ;-)

We should not need /usr/info/dir as a symlink. install-info works ok
without the symlink, the standard info browser does not need it
either, and any other remaining info reader which does not support
/usr/share/info/dir is buggy and should be fixed. We should rather
discover ASAP such buggy info readers by removing /usr/info/dir to
make them fail. That's a completely acceptable (temporary) breakage

We should not need /usr/info to exist at all either. This is not
/usr/doc where people read the docs by hand.
