range should not work for datatypes which it does not support. So we need a "dummy range" to show if range is bound to an invalid datatype. Either a static range which does not do anything, or just a string/image that says "invalid datatype for range".

I think that upload hides itself and puts a message in the JS console.

No. it is bound to a special "disabled upload" dummy control.
Argh, this is worse to do than I originally thought. Until now I've ignored XML Schema the best I could... we need a specific binding for each of these built-in datatypes:
That's bad. And that still leaves out any user defined types.
I've filed bug 316691 for a better solution to this.
I guess the bug is fixed per bug 331984.
