I think that using terms like "domain" or "finite_domain" with the
semantics from Constraint solving would clarify that this construct,
although being extremely useful, is not a regular "set".

the elements to be in the range [LO, HI]. You are trying to use values
outside the range. My understanding of C++ is that it is undefined
behavior to convert an int to an enum when it is outside the enum's
