And just how does a customer know this? They absolutely do not know!
And is it a myth before or after you offer unlimited email, unlimited databases, unlimited domains, etc? I don't call that a myth...I call it hypocrisy
....they tend to just look around for Unlimited hosting which they wrongly interpret to mean "Infinite" hosting.
The only reason they would think that is because they read foolish posts in forums like this telling them that it means infinite (and of course everyone knows there is no such thing as infinite....blah blah blah, as the typical straw man argument goes).
Your premises are false and therefore any conclusions derived from them are necessarily false. There is no magic in having, for example, a 3 GB, 5 GB and 10 GB plan when just about all web sites suitable for a shared hosting environment requires only a couple of GB. Removing these limits (creating an unlimited hosting plan) obviously makes choosing a plan easier.
Nothing has changed on server by changing the plan. A 1GB site is no different if it gets provisioned via an unlimited plan or a 3GB plan. A 4GB site is no different if it gets provisioned via an unlimited plan or a 5GB plan, etc.
Call that a "myth" at your own peril
