BTW/FWIW, about using Info in "editing mode" or not,
here's some trivia from the past...

Info mode used to bind command `Info-edit' to `e'.

That command lets you edit Info nodes, so you can
easily update or annotate your version of a given
manual, e.g., to correct or explain something to
yourself or add more information.

The command was declared "obsolete" in Emacs 24.4.
(Personally, I see no point in that.)  The reason
given is told by `C-h f':

   This function is obsolete since 24.4;
   editing Info nodes by hand is not recommended.

   Edit the contents of this Info node.

And `e' now just takes you to the end of the `*info*'
buffer.  (On n'arrete pas le progres.)
