[Bug 8046] Reflecting floats: The IDL attribute types include +/-Infinity, so it doesn't make sense to talk about floats being "out of range" because everything is within the infinite range

I'd just remove all the range-related references, i.e. delete the phrases "and
the value is in the range of the IDL attribute's type" and "or returns an out
of range value".

(I'm assuming the string "1e+400" will be converted into the floating point
value Infinity, because that's how large values are meant to be handled in
floating point, and assuming there should be no special handling for
out-of-finite-range values here.)
