   Note that when such software is used, numbers which are integers and
   are in the range [-(2**53)+1, (2**53)-1] are interoperable in the
   sense that implementations will agree exactly on their numeric
   values.

s/implementations will/implementations most likely will/

(Because there are implementations that only support 32-bit integers.)
