It just describes the chord harmony, not the order or octave these notes should be played in. You would never describe the same chord tone twice with a different number.

I'm glad you got the point.
Now, in my "example 5 min. piece" addressed in previous post, play me the Amaj7 chrod from it. No, not that inversion... no, not that, I meant an inversion... not that inversion. Apparently we got lost in standard chord notation.

What if I meant Amaj7 in standard root inversion, but... each of its 4 notes is in a different "octave" range?!

I do not see any problems with pointing out obvious discrepancies in something considered to be "standard", "traditional" or "well established".
Piano keyboard kept me away from going to a Music College and study Music. Traditional notation and nomenclature was the final brick in that wall that kept me away.
Knowledge is valuable, but creativity is priceless.
