My theory about the Infinite Dragonflight is that their motives might be intentionally good, but mislead.Think about their dialogue in the Dark Portal and Stratholme boss encounters. The first boss in Dark Portal convinces you to stop and let Medivh die because of all the lives that would be saved - of course, you know better because the Bronze Dragons told you the alternative would be worse. Likewise in Strat, Chrono Lord Epoch announces to Arthas how he is going down a dark path and they plan on stopping him.In other words, the Infinite Dragonflight may be trying to change the past because they think they're HELPING the timeways. But due to short-sightedness, not being as attuned to the timeways as the Brzone, or perhaps ignorance, they don't realise their actions have far greater consequences.Then there's Nozdormu. We all know there's a chance he's the hidden leader of the Infinite. He could be ordering them to go change the timeways. Why he would do that when he knows the consequences? Who knows. Probably one of many reasons. He could have been corrupted by the Old Gods (think War of the Ancients Trilogy, where they were able to seal him away), or maybe he's gone rogue like Malygos. Or potentially, since he knows the hour of his own death, he's interfering with the timelines and forcing people to stop and - eventually - kill him, to serve a greater purpose.I have other theories relating to the Infinite, but this is the jist of it. It's not set in stone, but considering what little we know of their motives and now Nozdormu's involvement, this is what I can piece together.
