@setfilename is special in 3 ways.  First if it is in an included file
it is simply ignored, to cope with the manual stating that this should
be the correct behaviour.  There is also a special warning if it appears
after a @node/sectioning command.  And if it appears at the top level of
the tree, everything appearing before is put in a special container to
allow to have this ignored.  There is also a warning is there are
multiple @setfilename in the main file, but it is not special of
setfilename, there is a list of @-commands that trigger such warning.

So everything you ask for above is already done...  But for the following 


  @setfilename ggg
  @end group

  @node Top


There is no warning, and HHHH is not discarded even though it appears 
before @setfilename.
