Oh no, even if I must go 'beyond' infinity I can by merely loosening the screws near the helicoid on the top and bottom of the lens. THAT would allow me to turn the helicoid so that the rear element comes a tiny bit closer to the film plane.
Christmas: NO, I think that infinity is the one best to anchor because that is supposed to be the 'ultimate' turn on the focus ring; the ring stops there and cannot go further. The other distances then 'fall into place'. - David Lyga
