I am not sure when I will be able to give a close look at the code, so I
make my general comment immediately:

Are you sure this is a property that must be forwarded and not

You seem to say that encoders may support a limited set of ranges. It
looks like the range should be constrained by the output, like the pixel
format, and negotiated on the chain to insert a conversion filter if

But I am not familiar with color ranges. I just want to make sure you
have considered the question.
