​I think most common usage of the word ends up being inclusive but the word
itself doesn't really care.​

Dictionary.com has a good example:

"We work from nine to five." - you leave at the beginning of the 5 o'clock
hour (I'm going for casual usage here)

Since our implementation of ranges is half-open the usage here is
consistent with that concept.  That it doesn't match BETWEEN is actually
somewhat nice since you can use ranges for half-open and BETWEEN if you
want to be concise with fully-closed endpoints.  But it is one more thing
to remember.
