I think the definition is intended to say that it be a superset.
That's what the example was supposed to demonstrate: even though only two
resolutions are supported, the values given are ranges.

I think "new settings for the Capabilities of the object" was meant to be
parsed as

(new settings for) (the Capabilities of the object)

ie it is the settings that are new. The capabilities remain unchanged.
(and I think capitalizing Capabilities here is probably misleading).
