// This can be used if application-level validation detects value errors, to
// obtain a reasonable SourceRange to use for generated diagnostics. It works
// best when applied to specific body items (e.g. using AttrSpec, BlockSpec, ...)
// as opposed to entire bodies using ObjectSpec, TupleSpec. The result will
// be less useful the broader the specification, so e.g. a spec that returns
// the entirety of all of the blocks of a given type is likely to be
// _particularly_ arbitrary and useless.
// If the given body is not valid per the given spec, the result is best-effort
// and may not actually be something ideal. It's expected that an application
// will already have used Decode or PartialDecode earlier and thus had an
// opportunity to detect and report spec violations.
