FWIW, I'm not a fan of using either (min) or (max) to represent minus infinity; it looks a bit odd.  Many other languages have an infinity constant already, so that pattern is well established; making (max) an alias for either of the infinities is prone to introducing confusion.

For anyone curious, the way to do it in APL is ⌈/⍬ and ⌊/⍬, which literally means take the max and min values of an empty list, so it's not completely unheard of.
