Maybe it's archaic to you, but I still haven't found any system available to
me that comes even close in terms of indexing. Admittedly I haven't looked
hard, but everything I see in actual use is HTML accessed from
a web-browser, so there's no shorthand for doing an "index search" or
a "full body regexp search", ... it doesn't even have key bindings to "go
the next page" or "go back to the previous page" ("previous" as in "the page
before this one in the book, not in my browse-history").
Texinfo is pretty far from perfect, but it does have its advantages.
And its markup is usually a lot more readable than the godawful XML markup.
