Is that really what you intend/want though?  For records with
upper() = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP to not be visible?  You are able to change
the range returned from tstzrange by specifying what you want, eg:

select tstzrange(current_timestamp, current_timestamp, '[]');

Why NULL instead of 'infinity'...?

Guess I'm still trying to figure out if you really intend for this to
make the records invisible to the 'most users' case.

I agree that the documentation could be improved here.
