It goes beyond that.  I don't think that you can convince me that this
is a useful feature under *any* name (since you insist that it be
different from Infinity).

You can revise the PEP all you will, but I think you are wasting your
time.  The feature is not a good addition to Python.  If you want more
reasons, consider all of the negative feedback you've received so far.
