I believe I accounted for most of the special strings that are
directly transcoded in texinfo.  There may be some that are missing,
however they can be added directly in the document using the
=@@info:<texinfo command>@@= syntax (inline export snippets).

Are there any particular pieces of synxtax that you believe would be
useful to have added to org-entities that would also be useful in
other backends?
