That Info does support this feature is one of its advantages, and we
should not lose it, IMO.  Without it, reading a large manual as a
reference is a PITA.

Besides, it simply feels as a bug (and actually is): you are placed in
the middle of a sentence that, more often than not, has nothing to do
with the subject you are after.
