Range "items" doesn't explain what the meaning is either.  It just
gives a really vague idea.  What kind of items?

"Dojo-Range: 6 items" seems clearer.

Are caches allowed (in principle) to split/merge these ranges, if they
knew how?  Would such caches operate on the item syntax -
i.e. structured JSON in the message body?
