I concur with Serhiy, Mark and Jelle for the reasons they listed.   Am marking this as closed.  If there were a greenfield exercise, Integer would be a mildly better choice.  However, this code has long been deployed and changing it would create more disruption than benefit.

Thank you for the suggestion but it doesn't make sense for us.
