Well, I'm not sure. I don't think it does imply that. The kawa-figures
directory would be for installation only. Thus, if you did do
@image{kawa-figures/pic1}, this might imply installation under
${infodir}/kawa-figures/kawa-figures, just as
@image{more-figures/pic2} might imply installation under
${infodir}/kawa-figures/more-figures. Also, I'm not sure if it's right
to have directories in the argument to @image at all, although I
haven't tried it and maybe it works perfectly. The reason is that the
file is processed as TeX and there are TeX systems for operating
systems with differing types of filesystem. It would be simpler just
to have everything on the one level.

Not that I know of.
