html/ps/pdf were added as standard targets not too long ago.  Of course
that doesn't mean you have to support them instantly -- there isn't even
a released release of Autoconf that has them yet, though CVS Autoconf

In theory, sure, but I don't see how we can automatically deduce what an
installation's web site looks like :).

As far as Texinfo's future goes, my only idea is to have a config file
for handling cross-manual references, and the default will be to use the
online manuals on http://www.gnu.org.  System packagers could hopefully
change/override that to use local copies if they try to build a
systematic HTML tree of Texinfo files (I'm not sure anyone does).  I
doubt individual admins would bother, unless they were bored and
underworked :).

When and whether I'll ever actually implement it, time will tell.
