The browser is supposed to have infinite range internally; handling overflow
due to hardware limitations (e.g. because it's impractical to have a 1024 bit
integer field) is left up to the UA in the hardware limitations clause.

The JS interface takes out-of-JS-range values and converts them, as noted in
comment 1.

This is all as intended.
