No, not if you want makeinfo to put the 'coding' cookie in the file
local variables section of the Info file it produces.
@documentencoding is the way.

I agree.  And using --disable-encoding is a simpler way of achieving
that, as it doesn't need any postprocessing.

If so, we should at least fix the handful of manuals that already use
"@documentencoding utf-8", or use non-ASCII characters without any
@documentencoding, thus producing Info files that might display
incorrectly in certain locales.
