Issue #16440 has been updated by zverok (Victor Shepelev).


`Range#include?` works as `#to_a.include?`. E.g. this:
```ruby
(may1..may31).include? noon_of_may3
# => false 
```
Is equivalent to this:
```ruby
dates = (may1..may31).to_a # => each Date between May 1 and 31
dates.include? noon_of_may3
# => false 
```
What works as you expect (compare value with range begin and end) is `Range#cover?`:
```ruby
(may1..may31).cover? noon_of_may3
# => true 
```

(To make things a bit more complicated, there is a special reimplementation for numbers, so `(1...2).include?(1.5)` is `true`.)

Bug #16440: Date range inclusion behaviors are inconsistent

----------------------------------------
It's weird that a Date range can include Time and DateTime objects that were converted from a Date object. But it can't include a newly generated DateTime object. For example:

```
may1 = Date.parse("2019-05-01")
may3 = Date.parse("2019-05-03")
noon_of_may3 = DateTime.parse("2019-05-03 12:00")
may31 = Date.parse("2019-05-31")

(may1..may31).include? may3 # => True
(may1..may31).include? may3.to_time # => True
(may1..may31).include? may3.to_datetime # => True
(may1..may31).include? noon_of_may3 # => False
```

Shouldn't the last case return `true` as well?
