Yes, that what I meant: the value may be anything, but I assume we need to know where to get that value from.

Indeed. We could do that.
Assuming each data category does not need more than one 'info'
Which seems to be the case.

It feels really complicated to get the actual data though. But maybe it's fine.

I'm getting the vague impression that no one really cares: so I'm starting to wonder if the toolInfo elements are really that wanted?

Could we get away with simply toolRefs, with the URI pointing to some non-ITS resource or being just an identifier?
