The spec let me think that number should follow the ECMA-754 [1] . But
i will double check.

Anyway for me a document is a data I post on the disc and it seems
reasonable to get the same result when I want to get it back.

If it's not a regression, it isn't really a blocker I think. But I
think we should definitely fix it.
