To begin with, if you are not able to define what
it means for a function f(x) to be differentiable
at some point x=a, one of the many things that are

it will have a definition missing, you always
but you nowhere define it rigorously. So I
guess new calculoose is incompletely defined,

lets take this as a form of ill-formedness. How
do you define your smooth without limit?
