Are we talking about treating that string as a defined format that
will allow it to be parsed into specific pages, or just as a string?
This might be outside the scope of hCite, but one use case I had in
mind requiring specific pages to be parse-able is actually viewing
those pages online with a link to something like books.google.com or
amazon.com. That would be possible if "10-50" can be understood to
mean "10,11,12,13,....,48,49,50", but not if it's just a string of
five characters with no defined meaning.
