I agree that conceptually all disjoint ranges are the same. Until they are
not: I haven't looked closely at the code changes but it's easy to
introduce assumptions about the layout hierarchy

Even if the code doesn't do this today it seems a good idea to have check
to catch attempts to introduce such assumptions in the future.
If these are intended to be regression tests it seems even more important
to do so.

Also, for either regression on integration tests I think it's a good idea
to include the common real world cases in addition to synthetic test cases.

That being said, these are just some drive-by comments and I'm not opposed
to getting this change in.
