In that case, WM must necessarily have given up all mathematics that involves liming processes, all of which assume infiniteness is actual.

WM's certainly is.
If actual infiniteness is a problem to WM, perhaps he ought to take up some area of study in which it is less firmly established as the standard than it is in current mathematics. --
