Yes, you need to specify the refractive index, absorption length etc. over the full range of photons you eventually propagate in a material. But I don't think you needed to extend the range over which you generate scintillation photons. And yes, the WLS absorption needs to cover the scintillation photon range.
Now, as for the number of Cerenkov photons, please take a look at the Physics Reference Manual for Cerenkov:
where you'll see that the number of Cerenkov photons depends on the wavelength interval, which in turn, is defined by the range over which you specify the refractive index.
What you must be concerned about is only the range of wavelength to which your photon detector is directly sensitive or the range which is shifted into wavelengths to which your photon detector is sensitive. It is important that you produce all the Cerenkov photons in that range.
