It is left out because there is no direct link to it; a human must
infer what is between the two links given.

I'd expect the default behaviour to create a link that looks like
<link_first /> -- <link_last />, pretty much what the manual job would
be now. I'd also expect various implementations to handle it
differently, either as above, or a smarter system might create a popup
of all links in the range, a hover TOC, 'print these chapters', etc.
