It's clear that implementations can't support infinite values.

What's unclear is whether the abstract Platonic ideal of CSS supports them or not. The 1st quote says it does. The 2nd quote says it doesn't.

If you want to allow infinite values in the abstract Platonic ideal of CSS to avoid add a half-open-range syntax variant, then it's fine, but just be consistent and instead of

> By definition, ±∞ are outside the allowed range

say something like

> In practice, ±∞ are outside the allowed range
