If there is a quantity between 0.999... and 1 and, therefore, these are two different points on the number line then you should define the distance between these two points. If you don't, then your first quantity is simply undefined.
'infinitely small' is not a definition. There are no two distinct points on the number line 'infinite(simal)ly' far away from each other.
