Found this:

# For value attributes that are invalid according to the min, max, step,
# maxlength, etc, attributes
#    The control must be set to that value. The form will not submit with that
# value, though. If the control cannot be set to that value (for example, a
# range control cannot represent values outside its range) then the value must
# be clamped to the nearest value that can be represented by the 
control. (This
# situation can also arise if these attributes are dynamically updated using
# the DOM.)

So it should clip to the nearest value. Which is basically MAX or MIN 
on which has overflow.
