  DocBook is an industry standard, based on other industry standards
like XML and SGML, there are large amounts of well tested tools to
work with them. 
  Texinfo is anything but a standard, I personally find it terribly deficient
with respect to 1/ structure 2/ I18N support 3/ tools.

  Generating DocBook documentation is a good long term investment,
it's not the case for documentation written in Texinfo, sorry GNOME made
the right technical decision there, and divergence was a positive decision.
