Subject: Re: [docbook] Allowing other namespaced content in info

I think this is well worth doing.

I guess this is a minor issue, but I doesn't seem necessary for
the doc to explicitly mention that they're not used for rendering.
The current doc for Info already says:

  Suppressed. Many of the elements in this wrapper may be used in
  presentation, but they are not generally printed as part of the
  formatting of the wrapper. The wrapper merely serves to identify
  where they occur.

So processing expectations for the non-DocBook info content wouldn't
really be any different from those of the DocBook info content.

Having a Foreign wrapper doesn't seem necessary, since the
elements would already be in a different namespace.
