A very similar idea was proposed before [1] as an I-D [2] by Rodger Coombs. We've also brought this up informally with other members of the WG.

Alas, in our experience range requests don't seem to be a high priority :(  For example, the problem of combining gzip with range requests is still unsolved [3].
