Quite.  I don't think it's practical to try and do away with man or
info anyway.  After all, there are now quite a few tools - Gnome Help,
for example - which can present most of the different document formats
in a unified fashion for those that need it.

Not that I'd shed a tear if the info tool disappeared.  I find it's
navigation method clunky and much of the GNU info documentation
appallingly written.
