Actually it was also invented to show that sometimes no limit exists!

Because differentiation and integration give different results, would WM
force mathematics to "exorcize" one of them?

The sequence of digits gives the set of digits {1,0},

Any sequence of digits preceded by a point is less than 1.

Besides which, in standard decimal representations, any real number that
can be decimally represented has at most two distinct representations,
while your claimed "oo" number would have to have uncountably many
"decimal" representations if it were allowed to have any at all.
