Thanks.

However, I don't like system-specific defaults, and I think a
configure-time option to change this is a nuisance.

I think we should use --disable-encoding instead, and do it by
default.  People who want Unicode quotes and other special characters
can always override that by specifying non-default MAKEINFO_OPTS at
"make info" time.
