I should make an observation: Strictly speaking there are no "integer numbers" (that is, integer number types) in JavaScript (until perhaps recently with Bignum).  JavaScript until recently has only one number type, namely a 64-bit floating-point number (of the class `Number`), and no integer types such as 16-, 32- or 64-bit signed integers.  In that case, the phrase "When the JavaScript value is a non-integer number..." should perhaps be changed to "When the JavaScript value is of the type `Number`..." if that is what section 9 means.
