"At least" should not be confused with "limited to". These are totally different things.

Current spec says "must", not "should":

"An implementation must support sample-rates in at least the range 22050 to 96000."

That does require that the range of sample rates must be supported, but does not prevent implementations from supporting more wide range if they want / need / are able to.

There is no sense to _limit_ sample-rate range unless there are corresponding technical limitations in a specific implementation. This is completely out of the spec scope.
