I'm not going to add a half-open-range syntax variant just to express that "literally infinity" isnt allowed but 10^100 is. ^_^

The statements aren't contradictory in general; the ∞ is a syntax convenience to indicate no explicit end to the range on that side. That "theoretically" is talking about an ideal, abstract Platonic ideal of CSS, not saying that there's a sense in which a CSS implementation actually supports infinite values.
