Integer and Decimal designations are useful in creating an accurate model of API methods and types.

These specific 'number' subtypes are used when describing types but the method parameter lists all use the more generic 'number' type.

It would be helpful if the method parameters which are numeric were more specifically typed.

All numbers sent to the API as parameters are whole integers, this is made explicit in the Numbers documentation page now.

It has always been explicit in terms of parameter validation in the console, but it's now spelled out (along with bit sizes, which were not available before).
