No, scheduled + deadline is a different use case. The syntax I use, =SCHEDULED: 
<2020-01-01>--<2020-01-07>=, is valid, there just isn't an easy way to enter 
it. One (of many) use cases: a week long vacation. This use case is supported 
by Org since the Agenda helpfully shows "(1/7)", and "(2/7)", etc. before each 
entry. Everything else is so efficient and has shortcuts, including time 
ranges, I just hoped I was missing something here. Perhaps it hasn't been 
implemented yet.
