That depends on what "outside the Enum range" means. You'll get an
exception if you somehow get an Int key in the map which doesn't
correspond to any value in the enum, but you don't get an exception if
you try to pass in, say, a large Integer.

Prelude> fromEnum (2^32)

In essence, you're using Enum as a hash function, but not making any
provision for hash collisions.
