"Fast Advertising", "Slow Advertising", and indefinite advertising.

Is there any actual difference between "Fast Advertising", and "Slow Advertising" - or is it just a way to easily specify two different sets of timing parameters?

The question has been asked before; eg,

https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/16843/slow-fast-advertising

https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/12165/fast-advertising-and-slow-advertising (documentation link broken)

https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/8502/fast-vs-slow-advertising-where-is-the-border-between

But I don't see an answer to that question.

Also, how to specify indefinite advertising; ie, with no timeout?

Various threads have suggested that a timeout of zero should do it:

https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/7320/infinite-advertising-with-sd-8-0-0

But I can't see anything in any documentation which actually states that this is so.
