That is correct, but only establishes the fact that no actually infinite path can be distinguished from all rational paths as should be possible in a Cantorlist  but is not.

In a list containing every rational: Is there always, i.e., up to every digit, an infinite set of paths identical with the anti diagonal? Yes or no?
