Do you say that a 64-bit float-point number is as good as a 64-bit integer?

No, in a perfect world, as a part of the 'use native' directive I mentioned in my OP comment, you would be able to comment on variables to specify the number type

something along the lines of

/** @type i64 */ // i64 could be replaced with any of i8,i16,i32,i64,f8,f16,f32,f64
const num = 12;
