It is a quite well accepted physical fact, unless one can explain, e.g., how the ether differs from the vacuum. Numerical language only explains the fact, which the OP correctly interpreted without difficulty. Nothing esoteric or nonstandard here.
My point was, if the existence of a quantity called 0.9999... differs from 1.000..., it must have a context in which such can be shown. The real number line, in which the terms are identical, is not such a context. Measure is itself not a simple concept.
