Yes, since it is the Content-Range header, this is in the response. I 
have updated the RESOLUTION page to clarify that. It now reads:

* The WG resolved on 2009/09/17 that the syntax for expressing a Range 
request (using the HTTPBis clarification for having custom units), for 
the temporal dimension, is:

  Range: <unit> '=' <start time> - <end time>

while the response will be:

  Content-Range: <dimension> [':' <unit>] ' ' <real start time> '-' 
<real end time> '/' <total dimension>

See 
http://www.w3.org/2008/WebVideo/Fragments/wiki/WG_Resolutions#Media_Fragment_Headers 
and complain if it's wrong :-)
Cheers.
