Yes or no?
Lists and trees are different. And antidiagonals derive from lists, not trees. The entries in list are well ordered. The entries in a Complete Infinite Binary Tree are densely ordered. Those order types are incompatible. So questions, like WM's, which confuse them, are nonsense. At least outside Wolkenmuekenheim.
