You are correct in your understanding. Some projects use
biblScope where they should use citedRange because citedRange is
a more recent addition to the TEI. It was first added in TEI P5
in January 2013. Before this, biblScope sometimes did double duty
to cope with cited ranges as well in some projects.
(Just some history so people are reminded how much the TEI is a
developing, community-based standard.)
Those wanting this to be a suggested value... I've added an issue
here on github:
feel free to add your voice, clarifications, or objections there.
