It's valid - This location example is included in the EMBL Feature Table


  3.5.3 Location examples
  "The following is a list of common location descriptors with their

     Location                  Description   

     467                       Points to a single base in the presented

     340..565                  Points to a continuous range of bases
                               bounded by and including the starting and
                               ending bases


For porting the EMBL database to use the BioCorba-0.2 IDL (which has a
similar model of locations to bioperl), I expanded your example to become:

  FT   CDS             join(50..50,101..102)
