Not true at all.  I don't use Emacs, never have, and likely never will.

I use the standalone Info reader (named info) if I want to look at the
Info output.  But as I mentioned already, I usually look at the Texinfo
documentation I'm working on via PDF or HTML.

And gvim has very nice syntax highlighting for Texinfo input files.
