[Agda] How does level polymorphism fit into a valid type theory? (from "More universe polymorphism")

It was mentioned in the referenced thread that types like

    {i : Level} -> {A : Set l} -> A -> A

do not themselves have types. Even with transfinite levels it couldn't be typed, because i would be instantiated to any level, including transfinite ones. How does level polymorphism get handled in a consistent type theory, if at all? Not just Agda's underlying type theory, but any type theory in general?
