Proposal

Add a toInteger property be to the Number constructor, for converting values to IEEE-754 double precision integers, exactly as ECMA-262’s ToInteger internal method. It could be implemented like this:

(function (global) {
    var floor = Math.floor,
        isFinite = global.isFinite;
 
    Object.defineProperty(Number, 'isInteger', {
        value: function isInteger(value) {
            return typeof value === 'number' && isFinite(value) && 
                   value > -9007199254740992 && value < 9007199254740992 &&
                   floor(value) === value;
        },
        configurable: true,
        enumerable: false,
        writable: true
    });
})(this);

The blurb at the top describes Number.toInteger, not Number.isInteger. And it strikes me as a little weird to say that 9007199254740994 is not an integer. I can see why that cutoff was chosen, but I guess I don’t understand how users are supposed to use this function.
