Not unacceptably confusing :)

I think the simplest is what I suggested in the original issue, which is changing "It is otherwise **undefined**" to "It is otherwise **infinity**". The definition of min(something, infinity) is very clear (Even in languages like R, where `min(4, NA)` returns `NA` and `min(4, NaN)` returns `NaN`, `min(4, Inf)` returns `4`.)

But this is no big deal, AFAIK all the engines converged on the behavior you intended (thanks for clarifying!), so this is probably not even worth further discussion, let alone spec edits. Closing.
