Understand what you are saying, but here we are documenting what POV-Ray
is setting as the default if the language level seen by the parser is >=
3.5. This override happens on seeing the media keyword. A user can, for
example, still specify method 2 in that media and then knowing that
default max value is 10 matters.
Aside: I'm with you in not understanding why the parser sets the max
value for language level >= 3.5 for method 3, but it does. If it didn't
we'd need to leave Max 1 for the same reason - it helps users understand
what defaults are when those defaults apply to the method they are using.
