I agree with you on the fact that the question is what the default range should
be, and from what Hugo wrote I concluded that one alternative would (perhaps) be
to not have any range at all unless such has been explictly specified; hence the

That way the old behavior for modules that do not specify a range for a certain
variable is retained, while we still clamp values where an explicit range has
been set.

Though I certainly trust that you guys know better given that you have far more
experience with the codebase.. I just thought I'd drop my 2 cents.

Thanks for the reply and elaboration!
