It is only in Wolkenmuekenheim that a Complete Infinite Binary Tree can
have any levels other than those indexed by natural numbers, which does
not include any level omega.

Thus what goes on in Wolkenmuekenheim is incompatible with what goes on
in standard mathematics, or even in intuitionist mathematics.
