The object should not store anything other than this single numerical value internally (smart caching of conversions aside).

I think we can all either agree with that, or dont-care it. The internal implementation is an implementation issue (or library). It doesn't need to be defined by the language. The one important thing is that that language shouldn't define semantics that require more than this single value (e.g. we shouldn't associate the epoch with the object).
