Highcharts - Area between two y values highlighted

I have a situation where I need to predict a trend in a time series, and I have to display confidence intervals. Is there a way to plot two sets of y-values in Highcharts as linked, and shade the area between the two? Something like this:


I have five time series: the prediction, two time series that bound the narrower confidence interval, and two more time series that bound the wider confidence interval.



The new Beta has that feature:

Highcharts does not natively support range charts (as of version 2.2.5), but there is a workaround. You can stack two area series on top of each other, with the foremost series having a background color matching that of the chart background.

And here is example javascript (that results in this chart):

var chart;
$(document).ready(function() {
    chart = new Highcharts.Chart({
        chart: {
            renderTo: 'container', 
            defaultSeriesType: 'area'
        title: {
            text: 'Range chart emulation'
        xAxis: {
        yAxis: {    
        plotOptions: {
            area: {
                pointStart: 1940,
                marker: {
                    enabled: false,
                    symbol: 'circle',
                    radius: 2,
                    states: {
                        hover: {
                            enabled: true
                lineWidth: 0,
                stacking: 'normal'
        series: [{
            // this series defines the height of the range
            name: 'Range',
            data: [1,2,3,5,7,8,9,6,4,7,5,3,4,7,6,5,6,7,5,4,2]
        }, {
            // this series defines the bottom values
            name: 'Dummy',
            data: [0,1,2,3,3.5,7,8.5,5,2.5,5.5,3,2,3,5.5,4,3,4,5.5,4,3.5,1.5],
            enableMouseTracking: false,
            showInLegend: false,
            fillColor: 'rgba(255, 255, 255, 0)'
