D - [Doc] Properties and syntax

I've been reading through the D spec, and found a couple of minor issues:

1) In the properties section int.sizeof says 2 (this should be 4, shouldn't
it?)
2) The word 'nan' is missing from the explanation for float.nan

This is both in the pdf recently published here and the on-line docs

Also, in cast expressions it is stated that the keyword 'cast' is required
to perform casts (to avoid ambiguities that appear in C++) however, later it
says that you can use
<code>
    if( (B)a )
</code>

to check if a is a reference of type b, where's the 'cast' keyword required?
doesn't this contradict the preceding statement?
