No, that's not how web browsers work. A link from another Texinfo
manual is to a page generated for a node. When you click on that link
that page will have to exist on the server. index.html on the server
isn't involved here.

I doubt that a web page that can redirect to multiple other web pages
is possible. (Note that we're talking about automatic redirection by a
web browser here, not redirection by clicking a link.) Even if it
were, it seems that you are proposing to change how links between
Texinfo manuals are generated for the HTML output.
