I'm not sold on the notion that Num should represent a range of values

Arguably a range is the only sane meaning of a floating point number.

Perhaps; but a Num is not necessarily a floating point number - at
least, it shouldn't always be.

But that's not the point; it's "can be" that matters, not "must be".
