[Voted into the WP at the February, 2012 meeting; moved to DR at the October, 2012 meeting.]
There is no normative requirement on the ranges of the integral types, although the footnote in 6.8.2 [basic.fundamental] paragraph 2 indicates the intent (for int, at least) that they match the values given in the <climits> header. Should there be an explicit requirement of some sort?
(See also paper N1693.)
Proposed resolution (August, 2011):
Change 6.8.2 [basic.fundamental] paragraph 3 as follows:
...collectively called the extended integer types.
