Subject: Re: [dita] Are indexterm ranges backwards incompatible?

And I suppose the following switch as well:
  • generate-page-ranges-for-ranged-indexterms: Yes/no

I agree that with such switches available, this issue would go away.

How do we mandate that they be put in the official DITA toolkit?

The fact that the distinction is "sometimes made" suggests to me that this is another thing to put in the hands of the end user to express however their tool expresses it. One can imagine options to the DITA toolkit (or other publishing engine):
generate-page-ranges-for-index-entries-on-adjacent-pages: Yes/no
generate-page-ranges-for-entire-topics: Yes/no
