While each FISON fills in one single line, that does not put any two
FISONs on the same line, and certainly does not, at least outside
Wolkenmuekenheim, put all lines in any one line.

Yes it is, as it is not merely a list of all its FISONs but the union of
all of them, which is not the same thing, except possibly in the wilds
of Wolkenmuekenheim, .

Certainly not outside his Wolkenmuekenheim. While WM keeps claiming itt,
he has yet to proffer any evidence for it, much less any proof of it.

Thus if it is to hold at all, it can only hold where WM's word is law
and his claims do not need proofs: inside Wolkenmuekenheim,
