Looks very good.

There is one sort of value that isn't === itself in 3rd Edition: NaN.
This means that hashTable.put(NaN, x) will always add a new
entry, even if there's already a NaN entry; and the entry can't
be retrieved! Maybe either intrinsic::hashcode() or Hash.put()
should detect NaN and throw an exception.
