So, I think that just removing the clause "but with the caveat that the exact
value is not important" would make it less confusing. 

consider the scenario where I have a slider with 50 at one end and 100 at the
other, and 4 tick marks in between, and step of 10.  In that case, the range
does represent a set of specific numbers.  This is a pretty common design
pattern for sliders on desktop apps.  The sentence above makes it sound like
Range is not the right control for this.  If range is not the right control for
this, what is?
