 I think we might consider standardizing the cross-browser behavior here in
 terms of appearance in the future (along with things like date and time,
 which only Chrome supports fully), but I don't think we'd consider adding
 a display of the value.

 While this is a common practice (I've done it several times before,
 myself), I did some research when we added support for this. '''Range is
 designed to be used for fields where the exact value doesn't matter'''.
 Where the exact value does matter, `number` is probably more appropriate
 (especially if using min, max, and step) even though it isn't as fun to
 use. While the value of `range` is always represented by a number, its
 purpose isn't always numeric for the end-user. The point of `range` is to
 abstract the numeric representation of the value into something more

 I think we should stay on the side of being more conservative with this,
 especially since our support for `range` is implicit, not explicit. And,
 you can always use a custom control or apply some JS to the standard
 control to do that.
