shows uses in SubtleCrypto as well.

What exactly is the problem with the current behavior?  Assuming you plan to do
a coercion to number at all, you have to do it before checking range.  The only
other option would be to immediately throw if the passed-in thing is not a
Number value, right?  That would break things like passing "123" (e.g. out of
input.value) for cases where the callee wants a range-enforced integer.
