Ok, I'm now getting what you have with texinfo 6.3 installed.

I was thinking that &optional and &rest are not part of the arguments and could 
be identified as such, like:

<dt><a name="index-call_002dprocess"></a>Function: 
<strong>call-process</strong> <em class="arg">program</em> <span 
class="arg_type">&amp;optional</span> <em class="arg">infile</em> <em 
class="arg">destination</em> <em class="arg">display</em> <span 
class="arg_type">&amp;rest</span> <em class="arg">args</em></dt>

or maybe have something simpler like:
<em class="optional_arg">&amp;optional props</em>
for &optional arguments,

<em class="rest_arg">&amp;rest ...</em>
for &rest arguments

<em class="arg">...</em>
for normal arguments.

for ex:
@defun call-process program &optional infile destination display &rest args

<dt><a name="index-call_002dprocess"></a>Function: 
<strong>call-process</strong> <em class="arg">program</em> <em 
class="optional">&amp;optional infile destination display</em> <em 
class="rest">&amp;rest args</em></dt>

The idea being to add visual aids from the CSS to identify which kind of 
arguments we have.
