In the WF 2.0 CFC, the range type description  contains the following:
"Same as number, but indicates that the exact value is not important,
letting UAs provide a simpler interface than they do for number. For
instance, visual UAs may use a slider control. The step, min, and max
attributes still apply."
Seeing as though the min and max attributes don't apply to <input
type="number" />, I don't see why "still apply" is used. The step
attribute still applies, yes, but the min and max attributes are new
to the range type.
