Wouldn't a zoom with such a limited range be kind of pointless?

Between 10 and 14 mm, is not a limited range at all. Those two focal
lengths offer a HUGE difference.

There is a difference all right, but it's not HUGE. Which leads to...

So a 10-14 mm (20-28 EFL) would indeed make a very nice wide-angle.

You can not and should not compare X amount extra mm in a wide angle
and a tele...

I am not comparing mm. I am comparing zoom ratios, and a zoom ratio of 1.4 is not much to write home about (ratio is similar to a 50-70 mm zoom). I've used a 17-40 mm lens on a full frame quite enough that I know what the equivalent FF range 20-28 allows. Yes, there is a noticeable difference between 20 mm and 28 mm, and yes, such a zoom is of limited use.
