I did hope the context made it clear I meant range as in Ordinal.

Of course.
Also, Strings (as defined in Pascal currently) are also not infinite,
due to length limitation.

So, my argument was meant as some sort of philosophical perspective.
I really don't care wether fpc implements it or not.

In the manner used by OP I would never use it, since it makes the code
more diffcult to understand (just because of the ranges and the way <
and > act on strings).
IMO Case should be used to make code more understandable.
