Only in Wolkenmuekenheim.
Since for every line of length n, d is of length at least n+1, at least everywhere else besides Wolkenmuekenheim, WMs claim does not hold true outside it.
And inside Wolkenmuekenheim all lines are finite.

The only way that some statement about a natural can fail to be true for all naturals is when there exists some natural for which it is false. --
