Bounds in measure formula overlapping?

I have created an aspect on performance counters. My states are as following:

Green state:
Lower bound: (empty)
Upper bound: 1

Yellow state:
Lower bound: 2
Upper bound: 5

Red state:
Lower bound: 6
upper bound: (empty)

When validating this I get the following error:

Model Validation : Bounds in measure formula for aspect "WorkItemUpdates" are invalid. When three states are defined, the upper bound of the first state must be equal to the lower bound of the second state and the upper bound of the second state must be equal to the lower bound of the third state. Other bounds must be empty.

One way to fix this is to set Yellow Lower bound to 1 and Red Lower bound to 5. As I read the description of the lower and upper bound fields, these values are included in the interval.

Then my question is: If my performance counter has value 1 (or 5), which state is my health in?
