My background is in quantum topology, and I am exploring low dimensional topological formalisms for information and for computation. I blog on mathematics that interests me at Low Dimensional Topology.

same paper was published in the same journal twice
Zentralblatt list these separately, but review only the second: Zbl 1080.14530 and Zbl 1120.14008

Quotes from Connes
I've added a citation for the first remark. Could not locate the second. Please have a look, and let us know if the context in the original source doesn't answer your first question. With regard to your second question, in dimension $\geq 5$, there are at most finitely many distinct smooth manifolds with the same homotopy type and Pontryagin classes.

Why are WittenReshetikhinTuraev invariants expected to be integral?
For the Jones Polynomial, as you mention, the conceptual explanation might be that we have alternative (nonTQFT) constructions in which integrality is evident.
