I think it is much harder to generate info directly.  By generating
texinfo you simply have to take care for rewriting the DocBook markup
into Texinfo markup.  No pretty printing is necessary.  If you want to
emit info you'll have to coordinate with the Texinfo maintainer every
time he makes a change.
