Curious that no one but WM needs it for that purpose.
And no one is looking for the sets of all such positions but only the
sets representing non-zero digits, from which sequence every digit
position is eventually excluded.

The relevant digit positions to the left of the radix point are
precisely those which contain non-zero digits, and every digit position
eventually and permanently ceases to be one of those, so the limit
contains no digit positions at all.

Not outside of Wolkenmuekenheim.

Outside of Wolkenmuekenheim every digit position to the left of the
radix point eventually becomes occupied with a zero digit which will
thereafter remain unchanged.

Thus the set of such digit positions to which this does NOT happen is
empty.

It is amazing how careful WM is to close his eyes and mind to anything
he does not wish to understand.
