Aye, indefinite ones or very long ones probably wouldn't need to be specified.

Copying what I said on Bug 60437 over to here (sorry about it winding up over
there initially):

The expiry time should not be displayed if it's set to indefinite. This may
also apply if it's set to a sufficiently long duration (for instance if it
expires after 6 months, that may well be plenty that it doesn't really matter
anymore), though what the boundary would be, or if this is indeed that case, is
more up in the air.

It is most important to specify the duration where it is shorter, such as of a
week (wikitech), 30 days (wikipedia), etc. There, the logins will be expiring
quite frequently, and for the users, quite unexpectedly: if they told it to
keep them logged in, it will appear to them that they are being logged out
after they specifically told it to not log them out, because that's what it
said.

Hey, just because Facebook does something, that doesn't mean it's a good idea.
I mean, yeah, I doubt it causes them any real problems, but we can still do
better.

You're wrong. Stating that things are completely obvious does not make you not
wrong. Interestingly, if you revert again, you'll be past three reverts on this
bug. You're from Wikipedia, right? They have a rather neat three revert rule...
