[whatwg] Infinite loopcount for audio and video

loopcount="forever"?  It looks better than "Inf".
loopcount="-1"?  Is a number, + a static constant for LOOPCOUNT_FOREVER in
the DOM.
Not that I consider the exact wording very important anyway.

Makes sense to me. If such a thing is not already spoken for why not aim 
toward a little consistency with pre-existing implementations, like in SVG, 
where it would be repeatCount="indefinite"?

Not my favorite piece of nomenclature ever, but it's out there and has a 
user-base already.
