On one side, this is indeed consistent with the Content-Range 
counterpart header
On the other side, it is slightly different that the current Range 
request that one can express in bytes, e.g.:
   Range: bytes 1113724-2082711
so rather:
   Range: <unit> ' ' <start byte> '-' <end byte>

Well, I just realize that there is also the use of '=' versus ' ' that 
differ.
Let's vote on that today?
