Great! (Do feel free to comment on the ticket itself as well, but
I realise this was more of a general comment.)

Yes, after floating around many possibilities we think that this
is the best way to be clear about what you mean when you want to
indicate the biblScope is referring to this one page rather than
starting on it.
I should point out that the minutes of these meetings are in some
ways a working set of notes on the ideas discussed in coming to a
decision and an aide memoire for the person set the task of
implementing it and Council during later debates. While they are
a record of the meeting, the more canonical repository of
decisions made concerning a ticket should usually be comments on
the ticket itself.

Yes, I and I think that the biblScope @from/@to are operating
similarly (and date was the most often contrasted example of
@from/@to in the discussion, if I recall correctly). These
attributes both provide a range-based citation (contrast with
@notBefore/@notAfter which doesn't necessarily). If your
date/@from and @to have exactly the same value then that would
imply it happened at that point in that level of granularity,
wouldn't it? (e.g. a year, a month, a day, an hour, etc...)

That is a possibility but would certainly need much more
discussion; the original ticket was asking for clarification on
@from in these instances (in comparison to its use on span).
Which other elements were you thinking this might apply to?
