Is it any surprise that the early GNU effort was really trying to recreate
ITS?  Can you really blame them?  I'm grateful that they made `info` be a
standalone program.  Putting the concept of "cursor position" into the
existing pagers (more/less/etc) and doing jump/xref/back would be more than
a stretch, IMO.
