> The JSON spec has a very loose definition of Number. CouchDB, as a database, should have
well-defined and first class support for numbers (both integral and decimal). The precision
of number support should be formally specified as should the algorithm used to represent floating-point
values, especially where an approximation must be made in the conversion.
