I had it assigned to the wrong product. Sorry about that.

Spec pull request here:
https://github.com/w3c/aria/pull/452

The PR changes:
> Declaring the minimum and maximum values allows alternate devices to react to arrow keys, validate the current value, or simply let the user know the size of the range.


To:
> Declaring the minimum and maximum values allows assistive technology to convey the size of the range to users.

And moves the statement to a note to make it more clear this is informative rather than normative.
