I like the idea, thank you for suggesting it.

The chosen UI is rather odd however. I cannot think of another use of
controlling export thhough "#+keyword: boolean" syntax. Usually, we
extend the "options" keyword. It could become, for example:

  #+options: texinfo+:t

Could it be possible to use that syntax instead?

How is it possible? Keywords are global. How do you change value
locally?
