> authoring advice that suggests authors put the real range

I'm unclear what the purpose or advantage of this would be (I'm happy to learn what I've missed - undesirable synthesis perhaps?). 

They way I'd think as an author is that if I wanted the whole weight axis to be available I'd probably just stick in `font-weight: 1 999` and be done with it (or leave the descriptor out altogether). This would save me trying to find out that the range in the font is actually 234-845. Yes there's sites such as Axis-Praxis which expose this info easily, and maybe font documentation too, but I'm fundamentally lazy so if I don't _need_ to do it...
