I question whether we ever needed a short-cut for x==int(x).  Adding this to the numeric tower would cause it to propagate broadly including the int type.  To me, this seems like feature creep resulting in language bloat.  

The decimal module has been around for a long time and no one has ever requested the feature.  This suggests it would be just another unused method in a module that already has learnability and usability problems due to a fat API.
