No it doesn't entail at all.

" 3 " is not an integer but "3" is. So the second graph is not a consequence
of the first, because the whitespace makes a difference.

(I frankly haven't a clue what the second graph means - I promised Brian I
would read the semantics editors draft before the telecon, so I might know
by then).
