If people use singletons, or open ranges, or closed ranges, or one-hour timestamp ranges frequently, they can make their own notational shorthand with a 3-line CREATE FUNCTION statement. We don't need to have it all in core.
But if you believe that, what syntax do you think people are likely to
try if they want a singleton range constructor? Leaving the user to
discover the problem and try to invent a workaround is not better than
doing it ourselves ...
