How is that different from 2 manuals having the same name?

IOW, why do we want to impose on the Texinfo system solution of a
problem that basically is a mistake on the part of the manual
author(s)?

One simple solution would be to have all images that belong to the
manual FOO.info to be named FOO-something.png, thus realizing a
poor-man's namespaces.  I see the GnuTLS manual already does that.

If what triggered this discussion is some text in the Texinfo manual,
let's fix the manual to say something more reasonable.
