Section 4.4. says:

For byte ranges, failing to overlap the current extent means that the
   first-byte-pos of all of the byte-range-spec values were greater than
   the current length of the selected representation.

It should say:

For byte ranges, failing to overlap the current extent means that the
   first-byte-pos of all of the byte-range-spec values were greater than
   or equal to the current length of the selected representation.
   ^^^^^^^^^^^

Notes:

If the length of the representation is 500 bytes, then the range of the entire representation is 0-499. Then a range starting at byte position 500 fails to overlap the representation.
